Child Custody

Guiding Families Through the Challenges of Family Law, One Step at A Time

O'Fallon Child Custody Lawyer

Family Law Representation in St. Charles County

One of the most hotly contested areas of divorce is child custody and the laws and regulations associated with the issue. At Winghaven Law, LLC, we understand that this time in your life may be difficult and that emotions can quickly escalate when children are discussed during divorce proceedings. Protecting your parental rights is important, and when you work with our firm, we can help ensure that you receive a desirable resolution to your situation.

If you are looking to obtain child custody in Missouri, contact a dedicated O'Fallon divorce lawyer as soon as possible. The laws and regulations governing child custody can be difficult to understand, and without the guidance of an attorney, you could be facing a challenging, uphill battle.

A few factors will be taken into consideration when determining who will receive custody of minor children, including:

  • The relationship that the child has with his or her parents
  • Which parent is more likely to continue to provide frequent contact with the child
  • The wishes of the child
  • The intention of the parents in terms of residence or move-away cases
  • Parenting plans
  • Prenuptial agreements
  • The employment status of the parents
  • Relative closeness of the parents to the child's school and / or the parents' community involvement

Once a child custody arrangement is determined, there are various other court orders that will need to be considered as well, including developing a visitation schedule and determining an amount of child support to be paid. It is important that you work with an experienced lawyer to protect the best interests of your child as well as your rights.

When you work with our firm, we can thoroughly review your entire family dynamic and develop an effective plan of action that can help you receive the best possible resolution for your case. We are aware that cases involving children can be difficult for families to resolve, but when you retain our representation, you can be confident that your case is in good hands.
