Child Custody

West Palm Beach Divorce Attorney / Child Custody Lawyer

In recent history the mother of the child often prevailed in matters related to child custody but recent changes in the law have been implemented in an attempt to treat both spouses equally. Not only has the law sought to place mothers and fathers on equal ground there have also been developments in certain areas expanding to the right to custody and visitation to other members of the family including grandparents.

The divorce attorneys and child custody lawyers have had the opportunity to be involved in cases require representation of the different parties and this has helped develop a legal strategy needed to protect the rights of the client. At Tiller & Rivera Law P.A., the firm represents client in the following areas
  • Child Custody and Child Support
  • Visitation Rights
  • Modifications of Custody Orders and Visitation Rights
  • Paternity and the Rights of the Father
  • Termination of Parental Rights
The general legal doctrine followed the Courts in custody disputes if the “best interest of the child” standard. The Court should balance the child’s interests and each spouses ability and willingness to provide what is needed in the best interest of the child. Considerations include stability of the household, the child’s relationship with each parent, each parent’s willingness to foster openness and cooperation with the other, and other factors.

Often emotions between spouses can lead to a hotly contest divorce and the children can be caught in between and used as leverage to the detriment of both the child and each parent. This is an unnecessary and tragic outcome that should be avoided both because it destroys the fabric of the family but also because it isn’t necessary to achieve a positive result for the client and could ultimately result a negative outcome or ruling by the Court.
