Child Custody Four Decades of Experience Guiding Clients Through Legal Matters

Raleigh Same-Sex Child Custody Attorneys

Strategic Legal Representation

Going through a divorce is one of the most excruciating experiences, whether a couple is a same-sex couple or a couple of the opposite sex. What makes this time even more challenging, however, is when the two parties share children. On the one hand, the child’s welfare is the most important aspect to consider, since both parents of course want to keep their children’s best interests in mind. However, here at Hopper Law Office, we are also empathetic to the fact that parents want to get to spend enough time with their children to form deep, intimate relationships.

That is why you need one of our Raleigh same-sex child custody lawyers by your side. When it comes to fighting for your ability to be with your children, you cannot trust just any generic attorney to represent you with sensitivity and compassion.

Contact us now at (919) 876-3300 to find out more about our family law attorneys and their superb experience with handling these situations.

How Does Child Custody of Same-Sex Parents Work in Raleigh?

In Raleigh, child custody cases for same-sex parents work just the same as those of straight couples. First of all, the parents who are getting the divorce need to figure out an arrangement for child custody as best as they can before involving a judge.

These arrangements should never be a cookie-cutter formula but need to directly discuss what each child needs in the present as well as in the future. Such arrangements would not only need to include the basic living plan of where the child would be staying, but also the effects upon that child’s health, education, medical care proximity, religious training, extracurriculars, social activities, and sports training.

If the parents are having difficulty deciding the layout and extent of custody, or who will have physical custody and who will have legal custody, it is time to get the court system involved, so it can carefully decide the breakdown of the custody arrangement.

Factors That Must Be Settled by Child Custody Arrangements

It can be challenging trying to make a plan that benefits all parties involved in a child custody case. Thankfully, our skilled Raleigh child custody lawyers have much experience with these kinds of cases.

Some of the issues which we can help you address include:

  • Parents’ ability to maintain active participation in the life of the child
  • Ensuring the visitation schedule is equitable but conducive to the child’s lifestyle
  • Reducing major changes or issues of discomfort in the child’s life
  • Making sure that all of the child’s needs for medicine, nutrition, and general health are taken care of

Getting Your Life Back to Normal
