Connecticut Child Custody Laws
Child custody is determined based upon the best interests of the child. Most family courts in Connecticut presume that it is in the child's best interest to have parental guidance and support from both parents. Therefore, joint custody is commonly awarded in child custody disputes. However, joint custody is more complicated than many parents believe.
As child custody attorneys, at Gans & Gans help our clients understand the applicable laws. We are supportive of their needs and concerns while working to negotiate an effective child custody agreement which is in the child's best interest as well as our client's. In addition, we handle issues such as:
When a Child Custody Agreement Cannot be Reached
Because our attorneys have experience as a guardian ad litem, we understand the many considerations involved in determining unresolved child custody disputes, such as family evaluations, appointment of a guardian ad litem, court appointed psychological evaluations, and other assessments through the Family Relations Department. We stress the importance of maintaining ties with school teachers and other individuals which may be utilized in assessing your situation and the best interest of your child.
