Protecting Children’s Interests

Dayton Attorney Prioritizing Children throughout Divorce Proceedings

Children are the most important consideration, whether going through a divorce, after a divorce or for unwed parents addressing child custody. When a child's parents separate, one's life changes dramatically. Many of the changes are logistical — in most cases, children need to learn how to split time between their parents and get used to living and sleeping in new spaces. Many of the changes, however, are psychological or emotional. Research indicates that divorce or separation can bring on anxiety and depression in kids and adolescents and that parents must work hard to make their children feel supported.

Our child custody attorney in Dayton understands how to prioritize children's interests during divorce and child custody proceedings and minimize emotional fallout. We understand how important it is to protect children to the maximum possible extent and will work hard to achieve legal outcomes that allow this.
