Representing Mothers And Fathers In Custody Cases
Both mothers and fathers want to spend as much time as possible with their children. This is what makes establishing custody and visitation rights during divorce or separation so difficult. As a lawyer who has handled over 1,000 family law matters and mediated more than 500 child custody cases in Kansas, I, attorney Bill Heydman, bring a unique and informed perspective to challenging child custody matters.
Most of my child custody cases are resolved through mediation or negotiation. Mediation is almost always a better path to a smooth and positive resolution than going to court. Mediation is a process where both parents come together to work out a mutual agreement regarding their child or children.
Establishing A Child Custody Agreement
I will start by gathering all the appropriate background information to support your case. I want to accurately portray your children’s current arrangement and find out what each parent’s goals are. I will then be able to determine your best options for an efficient resolution. In custody cases, your lawyer should be honest with you about:
- What matters to the court
- What the different outcomes may be
- How realistic your goals are
At Heydman Law, LLC, I know that legal issues concerning your children are very emotional. You may wonder how the courts would judge your case. I can help you understand how the law applies and keep you in control of the final outcome. My personal and honest approach will equip you with the information you need to make the best decisions regarding your child custody agreement.
