Compassionate and Committed Visitation Rights Lawyer
At Assalone & Associates, LLC, our attorney is committed to not only helping our clients navigate the complexity of child custody, but also giving them an understanding of how the process works. We empower our clients with information so they can make decisions that will support their plans for the future.
- Would We Need To Use A Guardian Ad Litem Or Custody Evaluator?
- What Factors Does The Court Consider In The Relocation Of A Child?
- When Can A Parent Relocate With Their Child After A Divorce?
Child custody comes in two forms:
- Legal custody: This refers to who has the right to make health, education and other important decisions regarding the child. Typically, both parents share this responsibility.
- Placement: This refers to where the child lives. This can be split in numerous ways.
To be frank, the court system cares little about the desires of you and your spouse when making a child custody ruling. Your children’s best interests will always be at the forefront of a judge’s mind. However, if you choose to mediate with your spouse and come to an agreement before walking into a courtroom, your requests will be honored.

A Sense of Belonging
We treat all of our clients with compassion, dignity, and respect. With our team approach, we really are all in this together and our clients experience the extraordinary difference and benefits of our unique approach to practicing law.
At most law firms, one lawyer will show up to represent you if your case goes to trial. With our team of lawyers, you get the entire team, as needed, for the cost of one lawyer. This provides excellent representation as well as a strong sense of support.
Because our attorneys each have unique backgrounds and skills, our team approach helps us make sure that every facet of your case is considered and covered. We also get to know you and your unique needs to build a case that meets your goals.
With most firms, one attorney will handle every aspect of your case, even the small things that could be handled much more efficiently by a junior lawyer or paralegal. We use the least expensive resources needed to get the job done and we pass these savings on to our clients.
