Norfolk Child Custody Lawyer
Protecting The Children
In any divorce or separation in which children are involved, it is critical to establish a parenting plan that will work for everyone involved while simultaneously protecting the children involved.
At Goldblatt, Cohen & Legum, P.C., Norfolk child custody attorneys from our firm have been representing Virginia clients in custody and other divorce-related matters since 1927. We understand the challenges and anxiety involved with child custody disputes, so we will do everything possible to find resolution amicably and efficiently in your case. When resolution cannot be obtained through amicable negotiations, we have the experience and skill to aggressively protect your rights in litigation.
Our lawyers handle all aspects of child custody, including:
- Parenting plans: Our lawyers help clients establish parenting plans that take all of the details of custody as well as visitation into account. We have a wealth of experience working out parenting plans that obtain the agreement of both parties and the acceptance of the courts while protecting the best interests of the children.
- Grandparent custody: In many cases, grandparents come into the picture to assert their rights to maintain the relationships with their grandchildren. We can help you negotiate a favorable parenting plan that coordinates visitation time with grandparents.
- Paternity: Occasionally, the paternity of the father comes into question during child custody and visitation proceedings. A father seeking to assert his custody rights might need to prove that he is indeed the father of the child, and a mother seeking to exclude someone from asserting custody rights can do so by proving that the man is not the father through paternity testing.
