One of the biggest challenges facing those seeking a divorce in Louisville is child custody. Resolving disputes in a Louisville visitation plan is crucial to completing your divorce. This will also have a substantial impact on the cost associated with your divorce and the time it takes to complete the process.
The experienced child custody and visitation attorneys at Dodd & Dodd have decades of service here in Louisville. We are able to apply that experience, and the ideas that have worked for countless others to help you to resolve disputes and arrive at a child custody and parenting plan solution you can live with.
The central theme in child custody matters is “what is in the best interests of the child?” Kentucky Courts and the Family Law Court here in Louisville value this quality in each parent as that is generally in the best interests of each child. It is important to ensure that the present patterns in a child’s life are preserved as much as possible.
There are factors which impact visitation considerations such as domestic violence, drug and alcohol addiction or criminal activity. However, in most cases the parties should do their best to set emotion aside and work from the point of view of the children. What is the best way to ensure each child spends quality time with each parent in a manner that fits with the natural existing rhythms surrounding school, religious practices, extra-curricular activities and the unique needs of each child?
When necessary, we will go to trial to achieve our client’s goals. In most cases resolving disputes in a Louisville visitation plan are accomplished through effective negotiation and in many cases mediation.
Mediation is a non-confrontational forum where a neutral third party guides the couple through conversations while providing insight and ideas to find common ground and resolve parenting plan and child custody disputes.
