Helping you protect your loved ones.


DEDICATED IDAHO CUSTODY LAWYERS


Dealing with child custody can be a very stressful time for parents and children.  Jon has the insight and knowledge to handle various issues and situations as they arise in this arena.

If trial is necessary, then Jon will assist and represent you through the process.  In the event that resolution is possible between the parties, Jon will work with the parents or other attorneys to reach a conclusion which will allow the parents to spend time with their child in a manner that serves the best interest of the child.

In some cases, paternity is an issue which needs to be resolved.  Jon represents both mothers and fathers regarding paternity issues.  His goal is to look in the best interest of the child or children.

Often times, issues which are of interest to the parents are modifications of existing custody orders or re-location by one or both parents.  Jon has the experience and knowledge to help you through this process.


KEEPING THE BEST INTEREST OF THE CHILDREN IN MIND


We also discuss the possible need for evaluators or counselors for the children or the couple since divorce can be a stressful process for those involved. Our clients are often worried about how much time they will be able to spend with their children and what is going to happen during the process. We help our clients to stay focused on the best interests of the children. When clients cannot easily come to an agreement, we are prepared to take cases to trial when necessary.


OTHER ISSUES AFFECTING CHILD CUSTODY


Often when working with clients on child custody and visitation matters there are other issues that may arise. We help clients who are seeking a modification of existing child custody or child support order because of life event changes, including relocation of the parent. As part of our divorce practice, we also advise clients on how their child custody and visitation arrangement will impact the amount of child support. We work with couples on paternity matters to help determine the nature of the child's relationship to the parent.
