Child Custody Lawyer

Experienced Advocated Guiding You Through the Complex Custody System

Divorces involving children have an added layer of complexity, as you need to deal with your own transition to your new life as well as determine what will happen with your children. Adding to this complexity is the fact that the traditional system, where the mother was automatically granted sole custody, is no longer in place. Now, the courts are much more open to joint custody arrangements that allow both parents to be a part of their children’s lives.

At Berumen Law Firm, P.C., we serve as the trusted and caring advocates you need to navigate past difficult custody issues and start your new life. Our extensive background in the fields of complex litigation and divorce allows us to create insightful strategies that will ensure you get a fair allocation of time with your children.
