Child Custody

Children can be significantly affected by a divorce. They are the most important “asset” that their parents have, and their interests must always be paramount. It is extremely difficult for children to understand this extreme change in their environment. For this reason, children must receive special care in the arena of family law. You cannot put a price on the value of your children, and their well-being is typically a parent’s top priority.

Spending time with your children is important not only to nurture the relationship, but also to promote development. Child custody, visitation and parenting plans provide parents with the framework they need to accommodate the needs of their children while they continue to spend quality time raising them.

In addition to more than 40 years as a family law attorney, I have been trained by the Quinnipiac University School of Law in conjunction with the Connecticut Judicial Branch to protect the interests of children in divorce cases. This training includes extensive review of child development and negotiation techniques. It provides me with additional skills to assist you in achieving results in child-related matters that will benefit you and your children.

The roles of men and women have changed dramatically in our society. In many families, it is no longer the sole responsibility of the father to supply the income for a family. Mothers are no longer entirely responsible for the care of children. In fact, mothers may be breadwinners while fathers stay at home, or both parents may have a job. Regardless of your situation, it is unique, and I am determined to help you carefully and creatively craft child custody terms and parenting plans that will ultimately serve the best interests of your children. The long-term effects of a bitter divorce can be devastating to your children, and I am committed to protecting your children from this.

There are many different custodial options, and the difference between each can be dizzying:

  • Legal custody
  • Physical custody
  • Joint custody
  • Sole custody
  • Shared custody
  • Split custody

Each of these is different, and the differences are very important. At my Stamford, Connecticut, firm, the Law Office Of Robert A. Skovgaard, I am prepared to help my clients pursue their best interests while supporting the development of their children.
