Custody Case Resolved

Custody Case Resolved with Help of Elizabeth Westfall

Unfortunately, child custody battles are often part of family court. Parents interested in obtaining sole or joint custody of a child often end up in court, fighting a child custody battle because neither party can reach an agreement. In such cases, a court of law will ultimately determine who will win child custody.

Parents interested in winning custody battles should not enter a custody dispute unprepared. Parents need to provide proper documentation and prove they are the best capable to provide full-time care for the child.

Today, it can no longer be assumed that only the mother will get custody of the children. Instead, what judges consider during a custody trial is based on the "best interests of the child", and they try to give custody to the parent who will provide the best environment and upbringing for the children.

Painter & Westfall has represented several parents in custody cases. They recently won a case for a mother who had been granted legal custody of her child. The litigation between the parties had a lengthy history and the father continually took the mother to court and appealed the decisions. 

Painter & Westfall worked hard to show the court that the custody decision was fair and the appeal from the father was overruled. To read the entire case summary for more details please  Download the document here. 

To win your child custody case, you will need to prove to the judge that it is in the best interest of the children to be with you. Be prepared and speak with an experienced attorney who will fight diligently for you.
