CUSTODY
Helping you protect your loved ones.


DEDICATED CUSTODY LAWYER IN TWIN FALLS


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.

“My husband and I have worked with Mr. Nicholson on various stages of custody, guardianship and adoptions matters since 2014. He is very knowledgeable and thorough in his work. He listens and explains the process and keeps you informed as to what is happening on your case. I would recommend Mr. Nicholson to anyone for any case.”

Dixie Dennis

“When I walked into Jon’s office I was lost, I had not seen my kids for several months and I was unsure what to do. Jon knew exactly what to do, we made a plan and the first time in several years I had some hope that I would get to see my kids. Jon knows the law and in court he is masterful. My past experience with lawyers is they spend your money and do very little to help. With Jon you know your money is well spent. Jon will lay out the step by step process and keep you well informed. I felt like input was valued and taken into consideration at every step. Jon really cares, and my children and their well being was paramount at every step. I would highly recommend Jon Nicholson for your legal needs. I still send Jon updates on my children 10 years after I gained custody and Jon is always happy to respond with kindness and interest in their well being.”

Bradley Dean

“Jon Nicholson was incredibly professional and kind as he worked with my ex and I through a tough-but-amiable divorce process. With his knowledge and quite-mannered approach, we were able to work through the issues of property, child custody, etc to a satisfactory conclusion for the both of us. Jon became a strong advocate for our children’s needs and rights during our negotiations and review, which proved to be something my ex and I could both get behind. Quality mediation between the two parties was handled with much professionalism and care. Drama was virtually non-existent. I would recommend his services to anyone, especially if you are seeking a fair, amiable solution to a tough legal situation. Jon is your man.”
