Child Custody

Resolving Issues Vital to Your Child’s Future

Child custody is one of the most difficult issues a parent faces during divorce. The attorneys at Abel & Zocolo, LPA are dedicated to protecting your rights to raise your child in a healthy, thriving environment. We represent families in Ohio in all aspects of child custody and visitation, including:

  • Primary and joint custody arrangements
  • Visitation rights
  • Grandparent visitation
  • Modification of custody and visitation orders
  • Enforcement of orders
  • Juvenile delinquency and dependency proceedings
  • Decisions related to religion, education and upbringing of the child

Advantages of Skilled Negotiation

Children are best served when parents maintain a cordial relationship. Through adept negotiation, we, as attorneys, can often set aside the parent’s hostility and obtain agreements on key decisions affecting their children’s well-being. We meticulously seek to hone our negotiating skills so that our clients’ interests are best served.

Supporting Litigation

In some cases, litigation is necessary to protect a child’s best interests. When one parent refuses to compromise or expresses hostility toward the other parent, negotiations fail. Sometimes a parent may even pose a danger to the child’s well-being. In these cases, litigation is the most appropriate forum for establishing parental rights. Our firm’s methodical approach to litigation enables you to feel confident that your children are protected and your parental rights are secure.
