Contact our offices at (704) 200-9278 to get started. We serve clients in Charlotte, Weddington, Boone, and the surrounding areas in North Carolina.

Custody Is Based on the Best Interests of Your Child

North Carolina courts consider many different factors in determining custody, but they must ultimately decide which parent will provide an environment that will best encourage your child's physical, emotional, moral, and mental development. In order to share custody, it is necessary for both parents to be actively involved in their children's lives, meaning both parents would know about and be involved in the child's education, extracurricular activities, and health.

Courts are hesitant to disrupt the status quo if one parent has been the child's primary caretaker. You will need an experienced advocate in any case. Our Charlotte custody lawyers have handled numerous complex and contentious child custody disputes. We are actively involved advocates for children across North Carolina, and we keep up-to-date with each judge’s proclivities regarding 50-50 custody and joint timesharing.

Our lawyers take an honest approach to difficult cases. If we can settle your case for something similar to what you would get at trial, we will advise you accordingly and draft a child visitation and parenting agreement that is fair to both parties in your child's best interests. Drafting your parenting plan with care and precision is crucial to your child's future and your parental rights.

We also help clients in cases involving:

  • Parental move-aways (relocation)
  • Grandparents’ rights
  • Adoption by stepparents, grandparents and same-sex parents
  • Child support orders and enforcement
  • Child custody and child support modifications

Can I Modify My Child Custody Arrangement?

Modifications of child custody, like child support, are never final until the child turns 18 and graduates from high school. You can always ask the court to modify the child custody or visitation schedule if there has been a substantial change in circumstances that affect your child.
