Child Custody

Child Custody

Cases involving child custody are those that arrange where children will live and who (which parent) which is called residential custody, and who will control the important aspects of those children's lives, including education, health, religious training, extracurricular activities, and more which is called legal custody. Legal custody and residential custody are not the same set of issues. The courts always act in what they believe is the best interest of the children in deciding custody matters including legal and residential custody. The attorneys at Juris are highly experienced in child custody cases, both as part of divorce and paternity cases and in post-decree modification cases, in both Kansas and Missouri, and welcome the opportunity to be of service to your family’s needs.

Child Custody Modification

For child custody modification to occur, most states require proving a change in the circumstances of the child or the custodial parent or some other triggering event to allow for a modification. When it comes to post-decree or post-judgment modifications of child custody, support and visitation, we are experts with helping you navigate the Court process and even try helping you avoid the need for Judge intervention. We have successfully represented parents who were the primary causes of the conflict, and the ones who were defending against it. Our attorneys are tough but fair and excel at representing the rights and desires of our clients without causing additional conflicts with the other party.
