Family Law

Family ties are thought to be the most private and enduring relationships in society. As most can attest, however, these relationships are rarely free from conflict. When domestic issues cannot be solved within the home, family law seeks to restore order and provide a fair solution for all parties involved.
For many, family law is thought to be synonymous with divorce proceedings. In reality, divorce is just a small part of family law which covers a broad array of domestic issues including adoption, premarital agreements, paternity and child support issues.

When legal action is necessary to resolve familial matters, it is essential that you entrust your most private matters with a compassionate and knowledgeable family law attorney. Our dedicated attorneys and staff serve as good listeners, confidants and advocates for all of our clients during their most difficult times.

 

Relocation/Enforcements/Modification of Custody/Visitation

A number of factors may prompt a parent to pursue a modification to child custody and visitation agreements. Custody and visitation schedules may need to be modified as children grow and work schedules and lifestyles change. Parental relocation may also make a change in custody and visitation necessary.  The Codjovi Law Firm helps clients modify their existing child custody and visitation schedules to better reflect the realities of today's life.

Child custody may also be modified if one parent wishes to move out of state making it difficult for the noncustodial parent to see his or her child. In this case, the noncustodial parent may try to modify the custody agreement or prevent the relocation. Every child custody modification case is fact specific.
Our law firm also has experience handling modifications if the custodial parent is unfit to parent based on medical concerns, chemical dependency issues and other factors. We are committed to protecting children's best interests in highly complicated parental move away and other child custody modification cases.
