Child Custody Lawyer in Charlotte, NC

Divorce is always a hard decision and a painful process. It makes it even harder when there are children involved. Whether you are trying to get custody of your child or you and your spouse are retaining custodial rights, our Child Custody Lawyer in Charlotte, NC, can help you navigate the legal process.

Under the law, both parents have equal rights to their child unless there is a court order to the contrary. In fact, gender alone does not automatically mean one parent is more capable than the other. Instead, there are many factors the judge considers when deciding which parent gets custody, especially with a contested child custody case. These factors include:

When Do You Need Emergency Child Custody?

If your child is living in an unsafe environment, you need to take action. The legal team works with you to help you get emergency child custody quickly and efficiently. This is called an "ex parte order," which means you are granted custody of your child without having to give the other side notice of the hearing. These orders are granted primarily if there is a risk of bodily injury or sexual abuse. Trust our team of lawyers and our staff to move quickly if you believe your ex-spouse is abusing your child. We can quickly get an order to ensure the safety of your children. Emergency child custody is granted for a short period of time, a little more than a week, after which you are required to appear in court to address the alleged issues.
