Newark Child Custody/Child Support Lawyer

At the office of McCoy & McCoy, Attorneys at Law, in Newark, Ohio, we understand the concerns parents have regarding the impact that the end of their relationship will have on their children and the quality of their relationship with the children.

The Courts tend to respect custodial arrangements agreed to by parents, but where parents cannot agree to what is in the children's best interests, the Courts must decide which parent will have legal custody and be the residential parent. Attorney Carl McCoy will help you apply the facts of your case to the statutory factors the Court considers to determine the best interests of the children in order to obtain the most favorable custodial order for you and the children. Contact a skilled Newark child custody lawyer today.

We can help you get existing orders modified. Life changes impact your child custody arrangements. We can help you obtain court approval for modifications to an existing child custody order or work to block a requested change if it will adversely impact your relationship with your children.

Licking County Shared Parenting Joint Custody Lawyer

Where it is in the children's best interest, the state's overriding objective is to ensure that both parents maintain consistent, prominent roles in their children's lives. To that end, we attempt to resolve your child custody issue through negotiation with your spouse and his or her legal counsel in order to allow you both to retain control over the important decisions that affect your children, should you believe that shared parenting is in your children's best interest.

When child care responsibilities are assigned to both parents in a divorce or custody action, Ohio refers to the arrangement as shared parenting. We can help create customized shared parenting plans (formerly referred to as "joint custody") that cover financial, residential, educational, medical and faith-based responsibilities for each parent.
