Child Custody



Like divorce proceedings, it is extremely important to get the custody arrangement you want during the initial proceeding.  Like with a divorce, it is difficult to get a court to make changes and modify its final orders.


Whether it is legal custody (issues involving major decisions for a child) or physical custody (who the child will reside with), it is imperative for you to fully know and understand the consequences.  There are personal, emotional and financial consequences which can affect your life and the life of your child for many years.  Mr. Lovejoy with his 32 plus years of experience knows what is required by the law and courts, as well as the best ways to present it to obtain the result you desire.


In such proceedings, you have to balance what you believe is best for the child and what is best for you.  Decisions on child custody will lead to consequences relating to child support payments, parenting time, the ability to move to a different city, change of schools and a number other life altering issues.  It is imperative that you are fully informed so that you fully understand all that applies to your situation.  Mr. Lovejoy will make sure that you are before any court proceeding or you agree upon any terms relating to custody and parenting time.


He will prepare you in advance and guide you through all of the Friend of the Court, mediation and all other court proceedings so that the best outcome can be obtained.  Mr. Lovejoy knows and fully understands what the court and Friend of the Court people find important in these situations, and he has the ability and skills to best present and argue that information to obtain the desired result.


You need to put yourself in the best position to obtain the result you want, and Fred Lovejoy has the proven skills to get this done for you.
