Solutions and Strength for Custody and Family Court Matters

Nothing matters more than the well-being of your children. However, the other parent also has strong feelings about the care and custody of children, and the court may also weigh in on their best interests.

At Schwartz & Krysinski, L.L.P., we know that child custody, visitation, child support and related issues can be emotionally charged and legally complex. We aim for fair, practical and definitive solutions that allow everyone to go forward in as healthy a way as possible. We try to keep those solutions in the hands of the parents, but we will vigorously represent clients in court when an amicable resolution is not possible.

Schwartz has handled every facet of family law, including:

  • Divorce, property and alimony
  • Determination of child custody
  • Visitation and parenting schedules
  • Child support and modifications

Solutions for the Realities of Co-Parenting

The financial and emotional cost of custody litigation is great, and the outcome is less predictable. The appointment of a law guardian to advocate for the child’s interests can actually impede custody negotiations, and then the judge dictates the terms of custody and visitation, which may not seem fair or practical to any of the parties.

We believe that the best solutions come from the hard work of hashing out a parenting agreement. The best interests of the child are served when both parents have a vital relationship with the child and a voice in decisions. We address pickup/drop-off, vacations, holidays, extracurricular activities and all the details to avoid future problems.

Of course, not every parenting dispute can be peacefully resolved. Attorneys Howard A. Schwartz and Nicole L. Krysinski can effectively advocate for you in custody litigation, modification hearings and other contested proceedings, without fanning the flames or dragging out litigation to increase our fees.
