Bethesda Visitation Attorneys

If a child custody dispute goes before a judge, he or she will use ‘”the best interest of the child” as a guideline in the decision-making. As family law attorneys, that is what we work towards as well. In nearly every case, that is also what the parents want. The problem arises when there is a disagreement about what is in the best interest of the child.

“The spouse viewpoints may differ. In some cases the emotion of the divorce can cause a parent to lose sight of the child’s best interest. We provide context.” — Shelly McKeon

From The McKeon Law Firm‘s offices in Gaithersburg and Bethesda, we represent our clients in child custody disputes and work to find the best solution for our client as well as for the child.

What is the Child’s Best Interest?

Unlike property division in a marriage, it is not possible to divide a child or do a cost/benefit analysis. In many people’s lives, their children are their most important legacy. We are parents, as well as attorneys, and we understand the issues involved in these cases.

At our law firm, we show our clients the potential options for shared access and various parenting plans. We provide information about parenting rights and responsibilities. We use our experience to provide a framework to talk about what is best for the children in the context of the new living arrangements of their parents.

Experience With Parenting Plan Agreements and Modifications

At The McKeon Law Firm, we have experience with a full range of child custody matters. Our experience includes, among other things:
