Well-Respected Murfreesboro Divorce Lawyer Advocates for Parents Involved in Custody and Visitation Disputes

Make your voice heard on every issue relating to the future care of your children

One of the most emotional and often hotly contested aspects of a divorce involving children is the question of custody. Ensuring that your children are well cared for and raised in the manner you wish is one of the most important goals a parent can have. To meet these goals, it is imperative that you obtain a child custody or visitation arrangement that allows you equitable access and input on your child’s future.

At the Law Office of David L. Scott, our Murfreesboro family lawyer leverages nearly 20 years of experience to serve parents involved in custody and visitation disputes. Whether you are currently undergoing divorce proceedings or have long split from your former partner, we help you pursue the fair and equitable custody or visitation arrangement you are entitled to.

We make every effort to ensure that your voice is heard on all aspects of your child’s upbringing, including:

  • Home placement: In many cases, family court judges attempt to create shared custody arrangements that provide each parent the opportunity to spend time with the child. It is important to bring to light any extenuating circumstances that may pose a potential risk to the child’s well-being, such as a history of violence or substance abuse.

  • Education: Custody arrangements often include guidance over the process of making important decisions, such as the education of the child. It is important to be sure that your custody order clearly defines the primary decision maker and lays out the other partner’s role in the decision making process.

  • Healthcare: Another important aspect of a custody arrangement is the identification of the child’s health insurance provider and the process of making important health decisions in routine and emergency situations. Without a clearly defined strategy for health insurance and care decisions, you risk future conflict.

From the moment you contact us, Attorney Scott will begin helping you create realistic goals and planning legal strategies to achieve them.

Experienced advice on a wide range of child-related issues

Attorney Scott provides the education and guidance you need to seek resolutions to disputes relating to a wide range of child-related issues, including:

We explore every available strategy to find resolutions

Depending upon your situation and your relationship with your former spouse, you may have options when attempting to obtain a fair child custody and visitation arrangement in Murfreesboro courts.

Attorney Scott offers the advice you need to understand these options, including:

  • Mediation: In some cases, a judge may order you and your former spouse to undergo mediation. In other cases, you may wish to explore the option voluntarily. The mediation process is much like a guided negotiation process in which each party is offered the opportunity to state their case with the guidance of a trained mediator. The mediator’s role is to guide the conversations toward collaborative resolution and limit confrontations.  

  • Negotiation: Informal negotiation between Attorney Scott and your may be helpful in resolving your custody or visitation dispute. By working together to resolve the dispute, you may save the expense and emotion of drawn-out divorce proceedings.

  • Litigation: Divorcing couples that are unable to resolve child custody or visitation disputes through collaborative methods are likely to require the guidance of a family law judge. Attorney Scott has the experience and litigation skill needed to state your case in court and advocate for a favorable custody or visitation order.
