Child Custody and Child Visitation: Sinclair and Theiner
The issue of child custody is the most common dispute in divorce. When soon-to-be-ex’s cannot agree on child custody, it’s the family court judge who will make the final decision based on the best interests of the child. Attorney Jennifer Sinclair and attorney Samuel Theiner help clients present their case before the family court judge. They meticulously prepare each case and are ready with witnesses, exhibits and evidence to present a strong argument before the judge. They can also assist with parenting plans for court approval. Typical parenting plans include an outline of holidays, weekends and summers for the non-custodial parent.
Alternative Resolution: Mediation
Often, mediation in divorce is a better alternative than battling matters out in the courtroom. It’s less contentious, time consuming and costly than going to court. The Law Firm of Sinclair and Theiner assists clients in preparing for the series of mediation meetings and act as legal counsel. The meetings are facilitated by a neutral third party who helps spouses identify issues and resolutions. If mediation is a wise choice, attorney Jennifer Sinclair and attorney Samuel Theiner will advise you.
