Child Custody Attorneys Tampa, FL
If you and your child’s other parent are divorcing, legally separating, or otherwise “splitting” romantically, you’ll want to connect with The McKinney Law Group’s Tampa, FL child custody attorneys as soon as you can for legal guidance and support. If you and your spouse cannot agree on how your child custody arrangements should “shake out” and you anticipate that you’ll need to go to court to seek judicial intervention, we can build the strongest case possible based on your child’s best interests. However, if you and your spouse generally agree on how your co-parenting relationship should move forward, our legal team’s extensive experience with collaborative family law approaches can serve your interests and your child’s interests in a lower-stress capacity.
Child Custody Attorneys – Tampa, FL
If your child custody situation is contentious, your child custody case will be decided according to the “best interests of the child” standard. Essentially, the judge assigned to your case will base their decision upon whatever they believe to be in your child’s best interests. However, if possible (and appropriate for your situation) it is generally better for everyone involved to avoid having a judge decide your family’s fate. As a result, if you and your spouse plan to co-parent moving forward, our team can help you to craft a legally enforceable parenting plan that will serve your child’s best interests and will keep their future out of a judge’s hands.
Crafting a Workable Parenting Plan
If you and your spouse can work together side by side, our team can help you to craft your parenting plan alongside your spouse and their attorney. Depending on what kind of process is needed, you may benefit from having a neutral mediator in place during negotiations. Conversely, if you and your spouse plan to co-parent moving forward but the negotiation process won’t be served well by you being in the same room right now, our team can help you to craft your parenting plan primarily through negotiations with your spouse’s attorney. Your parenting plan will govern the practical ins and outs of your child custody arrangement, from when your child will stay with each parent to how holidays will be managed.
Legal Assistance Is Available
