Resolutions With A Focus On Children
While our firm will take whatever steps necessary to resolve your legal issues, we know that divorces and custody disputes can be especially difficult when children are involved. As a Certified Child Welfare Law Specialist and a mother herself, Rochelle Oldfield is well versed on finding solutions that are in the best interests of the family, with special attention to the children. At our firm, we stand as an advocate to our client and their children and work toward resolutions that will help them most in the end.
Two Roles, One Goal
As family law attorneys, we have two roles. One of these roles may be as a guardian ad litem. In this role, we advocate for the child and help parents make decisions that are in the child’s best interests. The second role may be acting as a petitioner in situations where a parent or third party believes neglect or abuse is occurring.
Whatever role we are asked take on, our primary goal is to protect the rights of the child and make sure that the final result is truly what’s best for them. Though we always try to push for negotiations at first, we know this isn’t possible in every situation, which is why we are also prepared for litigation if necessary.
Even after your divorce, issues involving child custody may still arise. A change in circumstances could necessitate a modification of the parenting plan, an unanticipated situation may cause a dispute over what the parenting plan requires, or perhaps the other parent is failing to honor his or her obligations. These issues require swift action in order to preserve your rights and safeguard the wellbeing of your children.
The Law office of Rochelle A. Oldfield will give you peace of mind by taking action to promptly resolve issues or secure compliance from an uncooperative parent. We understand the panic and fear that child custody issues can instill in parents. We strive to foster a supportive environment for our clients, thoroughly explaining the situation and keeping each client apprised of the latest developments in his or her case.
