Child custody determinations can become highly contentious for both parties and highly stressful for children involved. When faced with a child custody dispute, it is important to understand your rights and obligations. At Morrow Porter Vermitsky & Taylor, PLLC in Winston-Salem, we are committed to providing the legal support and advocacy you need to navigate the legal system in a child custody dispute.
In child custody cases, the general premise is that a child needs a relationship with mother and father. Only in a very few cases (where the child is at risk due to addition, neglect or abuse) is anyone going to be prohibited from seeing their child. The court will seek to identify the timeshare and parenting arrangement that is best for the children involved.
No. There is no maternal presumption in North Carolina. The courts will only look at the best interests of the minor child based on specific facts and circumstances of each case. For more information to protect your rights, please contact us directly.
Each of our attorneys is an experienced advocate that will fight to achieve results in your case.
