Fighting For Parenting Time

One of the most difficult aspects of a divorce is negotiating custody and visitation arrangements for your children. As parents, you both care about your children and want to continue nourishing and building the parent-child bond as they grow and mature. The family law attorneys of Conlon, McGlynn & McCann are attuned to how vital these arrangements are to the future of your family. We strive to seek favorable outcomes beneficial for your family unit.

Striving For Workable Solutions

Like most states, Connecticut considers what is in the best interest of the child when making custody arrangements. The goal is to create a plan that provides your child with the most stable environment emotionally, financially, physically and educationally. Our lawyers will explain the conditions of both legal and physical custody, and work with you to arrive at a mutually acceptable parenting plan in which an allocation of parental responsibilities is carefully and thoroughly examined.

If a plan cannot be agreed upon through alternative dispute resolution methods, our team will fight for your family through careful and aggressive litigation. Whether one parent is considering relocating for a job or you have strong religious beliefs, we will answer your questions and advise you of the options regarding your children.

Understanding Your Children’s Needs

Courts consider a child’s physical safety, health and educational needs. Their emotional well-being, what is best for their social development and their psychological health are also examined.

Factors include:

  • Developmental needs of the child
  • Parent’s capacity to provide a healthy and safe environment
  • The current and past state of the parent-child relationship
  • Parent’s history regarding domestic violence, substance abuse or neglectful treatment

We will work with psychologists, counselors and other regarded professionals in order to strategically craft a parenting plan that best serves the unique needs of your family. Our attorneys have experience working as a guardian ad litem in parental rights and responsibilities cases. This title has given us an intricate understanding of how to really look at the family unit, investigate how the family functions and create feasible solutions.
