Elite Custody Counsel In Louisville, Kentucky, And Southern Indiana

Child custody disputes are among the most emotionally taxing legal battles individuals can face. Our team of dedicated trial attorneys brings a unique blend of knowledge and compassion to the table when providing advice and representation for parents in custody cases.

As empathetic, skilled advocates, we will advocate for your parental rights and stand with you for what you believe is best for your child(ren).

Types Of Custody

It doesn’t matter whether your custody case is part of a divorce or the result of your parenthood outside of marriage. Your parent-child relationship is the focus of your custody order, not your marital status. Your court order might ultimately include one or more of the following types of custody.

Sole Custody Or Joint Custody

In custody arrangements, parents may be granted either sole custody, where one parent has primary decision-making authority, or joint custody, where both parents share responsibilities and decisions concerning the child’s upbringing. Our attorneys work diligently to ensure that custody arrangements reflect the best interests of the child while protecting our clients’ rights as parents.

Physical And/Or Legal Custody

Physical custody pertains to where the child resides, while legal custody involves the right to make important decisions regarding the child’s upbringing, such as education, health care and religious upbringing. Whether seeking physical or legal custody, our firm provides strategic guidance tailored to your unique circumstances.

Temporary Or Permanent Custody

Temporary custody orders may be issued during the divorce process or other legal proceedings to establish custody arrangements until a final decision is reached. Permanent custody orders, on the other hand, dictate long-term custody arrangements. Our attorneys are adept at navigating both temporary and permanent custody matters with diligence and skill.

Our family law attorneys are committed to helping you preserve your parent-child relationship and supporting your convictions about your child’s most appropriate custody arrangement.

Factors Influencing Custody Awards

When determining custody arrangements, various factors are considered to ensure the child’s best interests are upheld. These factors may include:

  • The parent’s wishes
  • The child’s preferences (depending on their age and maturity)
  • The child’s relationship with each parent
  • The child’s adjustment to their home, school and community

Our attorneys meticulously analyze each case to present compelling arguments that support our clients’ parental rights while prioritizing the well-being of the child.

Modifying Custody Orders

Life circumstances can change, warranting modifications to existing custody orders. Whether seeking to modify custody due to parental relocation, changes in the child’s needs or other significant life events, our attorneys are skilled in navigating the legal process to pursue favorable outcomes for our clients.

We approach each modification case with sensitivity and determination, advocating for the best interests of our clients and their children.
