Considerations In Custody
There are many decisions that you have to make while navigating custody. Making a comprehensive parenting plan involves choosing:
Even reading this, and contemplating not having the same kind of role in your children’s lives as you do now, can feel impossibly difficult. How are you supposed to let go of certain things? What should you hold on to? What if you and the child’s other parent don’t agree on the way things should be - does it mean you’ll have to go to court?
These and other questions are things that our compassionate, highly experienced Longmont custody lawyers can help you answer. We can explain all of your options, and tell you what your options will mean practically for your and your children’s lives. You can trust us to serve as your reliable guides through this journey and lead you to the best possible outcome.
How Other Custody Attorneys Typically Handle Cases
The problem with many custody firms is that they start the process by telling, not by discovering. They will tell you what it is they recommend for your situation and what they can do for you, which sounds fine, but especially when you first contact them, you may not know exactly what it is that you want yet. The lawyer will usually proceed along the path necessary to achieve their vision, which may involve unnecessary conflict. They may charge high hourly billing rates; because custody can take a long time to resolve, this can become very expensive, very quickly.
At the end when the dust settles, you may be left wondering if it was all worth it, if you even like the outcome, and what you should do next, and the lawyer - whose relationship with you likely ended when the agreement was signed - probably won’t be around to help you figure it out.
How Our Longmont Custody Lawyers Treat Clients
That’s why New Leaf Family takes an entirely different approach to custody. We realize that custody is a sensitive, deeply personal issue, not just a legal one. We know that the implications will affect your and your children’s lives for years to come, and it’s important to feel confident in the direction that your lives are headed! That’s why we start by engaging you in a proven process of determining and clarifying your goals. We will take the time to get to know you, your family history, your family dynamics, your fears, and your desires for your kids’ lives. Only when both you and our team are crystal clear on where it is you want to go do we start moving forward to get you there! Everything we do for you revolves around your dreams for the future.
We do everything in our power to find creative resolutions that don’t just mean “giving up” in order to keep things peaceful, because that’s what’s best for kids. However, if the other parent simply won’t cooperate, we’re not afraid to have your back if necessary, and our courtroom experience can give you an advantage. We charge predictable, set-rate monthly fees in order to keep our legal services cost-effective, and we have a vast network of coaches, counselors, and other professionals who can assist you with other aspects of the custody process! Because children grow and change, we want to be a firm that’s here for you for all phases of their lives; you can rely on us for the long haul.
