Protecting What Matters Most In Child Custody And Visitation Cases

Divorce and separation raise numerous emotional hurdles. When children are involved, the most wrenching decisions are those involving your relationship with them. The uncertainties ahead can be difficult for both you and your children. With so much at stake, it's easy to lose sight of what is truly important — your children's well-being.

At The Law Offices of Michael N. Kalil, we understand. Confronting these complicated decisions is no easy task. Our job is to help make it easier by providing solution-oriented guidance rooted in decades of family law experience.

Seeking Win-Win Resolutions

Child custody determinations are rarely black-or-white. Instead of approaching these complex cases from a battlefield stance, we strive to work out reasonable resolutions. Collaborative tools such as mediation and negotiation give you a stronger say in the outcome. Rather than relying on a judge — who's essentially a stranger — to make such crucial decisions in your children's lives, you can rely on our attorneys to identify opportunities for win-win solutions.

Child custody isn't about winning or losing. It's about doing what's best for your children. As experienced advocates and problem-solvers, our lawyers can help you work out an arrangement that makes sense for your situation.

Helping Families That Come In All Shapes And Sizes

Not every family functions with a mom and a dad. Sometimes substance abuse, domestic violence issues or other considerations may render one parent — father or mother — in a better position to raise the children. In some instances, grandparents may fill that role on a temporary or long-term basis.

We understand the nuances involved in these situations. We especially appreciate the challenges fathers often face in pursuing custody and visitation rights. Experienced in protecting fathers' rights, we will work closely with you to develop a strategy you can feel confident about.

Our legal team also has extensive experience helping parents regain their custody rights. If you're in danger of losing your children due to false allegations of neglect or abuse, we can help.
