Issues in Third-Party Custody and Visitation Disputes in Washington, D.C.
Our lawyers help parents resolve child custody and visitation issues involving:
- Unfit parents
- Unmarried parents
- Other relatives with a legitimate interest in the child
Each situation is unique and ultimately determined by the facts of the case. Our family law attorneys have significant experience with third party custody and visitation cases that focus on:
- How long the child has lived with or been away from a parent or third party.
- The age of the child.
- The strength of the ties between the child and the third party.
- Neglect either by a biological parent or a third party involved in the care of the child.
- Abandonment by a parent.
- Emotional or mental illness in a parent or third party.
- Criminal history of a parent or third party.
As with any child custody or visitation matter, courts use the “best interests of the child” standard as the criterion for determining the outcome of a case, whatever its specific circumstances. Like the courts, our attorneys focus on the best interests of the children involved in third-party custody disputes. Within that framework, we develop solutions that work for our clients and their children.
