Children are a central part of any parent's life, so it is not surprising
that child custody,
child support, and visitation rights are often the most highly contentious segments of

is an integral element in achieving this goal. No two situations are exactly
alike, particularly when it comes to such complex areas of family law,
so no one can truly advise you on your options until they have heard the
extent of your case. Go ahead and
