Custody

Custody Fight | Beggs Law Firm | Bay City MINothing is more precious than our children. Your right to have access to and spend time with your children is also precious.  If you wait for the system to help you or you do nothing, then you are jeopardizing your rights to gain custody of your children.  You may be stuck with a “decision” you do not agree with or cannot bear to consider.

A child’s best interests are always the basis for primary consideration in a child custody or visitation agreement. At Beggs Law Firm, our lawyers explain the pros and cons of different arrangements, and what the Michigan Child custody statues allow and require. Every situation is unique – there is no “one size fits all” in custody situations.  We explore different possibilities by applying past arrangements and desired future custody ideas. Only after all the unique factors are considered will a comprehensive parenting plan be created for you and your children’s specific needs. All agreements, of course, must be approved by the court.

 

 

The four basic custody arrangements we can discuss with you are:

  • Joint Legal Custody
  • Sole Legal Custody
  • Sole Physical Custody
  • Joint Physical Custody

Your children deserve to spend adequate time with both parents – whether that falls to weekend visitation or arranged weekly visitation.  Don’t settle for less than your children deserve.  Fight for your rights – fight for your children.
