Defend Your Rights To Your Children
The divorce issue that is almost always the most emotional and contentious is child custody and visitation rights. As a parent, it is hard to accept the fact that your child may not be living under your roof every day, and it can be hard to work with your child’s other parent to reach a custody agreement.
When it is time to negotiate a custody and visitation agreement, we at Russell W. Ray, PLLC, can help you protect your relationship with your child. Attorney Russell Ray has defended parents’ rights to their children for over 30 years. We understand just how important it is that you see your children regularly after divorce.
We also help parents through the process of relocating with the children after divorce.
We Will Help You Avoid Serious Mistakes
Do not fall into the trap of waiting until you are separated from your spouse to seek the advice of a family law attorney. Too many parents make mistakes at the time of separation that can seriously hurt their chances of maintaining primary custody.
Some examples of these mistakes include:
- Moving out of the marital home without your child
- Denying phone contact between your child and the other parent
- Not following custody and visitation orders
- Using your child as a sounding board to complain about the other parent
- Attempting to cause a rift between the child and his or her other parent
- Allowing the other parent to have custody before filing for divorce
We understand how to give parents the best chances at custody time with their kids. We are here to discuss your case and answer your questions whenever you are ready.
