Hillsborough County Visitation Rights Attorney
What is best for your child? That is the question at the center of all child custody and visitation matters, whether they are part of a dispute or related to a paternity case. That is the question that the courts always have in mind, and that is also the question that is most important to you. The challenge is that everyone involved may have a different idea of what is truly best for your child. At the Poulos Law Firm in Tampa, Florida, my goal is to find out what you believe is best for your child and support that position with the appropriate evidence.
A Unique Perspective on Child Custody Cases
Early in my career as a lawyer, I worked for the state of Florida, handling cases in juvenile dependency court. The cases I handled were very intense, involving the potential of a child being permanently taken from his or her parents. At the center of these cases was that same question: What is best for the child? In these cases, I was able to dig deep to get answers to this question, working with a wide range of medical and psychological experts. I learned how to appreciate just how important it is to be absolutely careful with the bond between children and parents, and that gives me a unique perspective on child custody cases. I am dedicated to protecting the bond between you and your child.
Variations of Child Custody Arrangements
There are many variations of child custody arrangements. It is important to understand that custody is divided into two subsets: legal custody and physical custody. Legal custody addresses the decision-making power. In other words, it answers the question of who will make decisions about the child's education, religion, medical needs and similar issues. Physical custody addresses where the child will live and spend time. I will work with you to reach child custody agreements that are right for your child.
