Custody/Parenting

Montana generally no longer uses the words “custody” and “visitation.” Instead, we use “parenting” to promote the idea that both parents should be involved in the children’s lives. The most important concern for the court in deciding on a parenting agreement plan is what is in the best interest of the child.

An experienced attorney can walk you through the laws our Courts apply and protect your parenting rights. Custody and parenting can be one of the most emotionally difficult times for couples with children or parents that may not be married. Making sure you are protecting your parenting rights and ensuring the best outcome for your child(ren) can be facilitated by an experienced attorney.

When parents’ divorce, the divorce decree will specify with whom the children will live primarily. When the parents are unable to reach a decision, the court may make a decision based on the child’s best interest. Our firm’s attorneys, with over 64 years of combined legal experience, can give sound, expert advice to you regarding your unique case involving your child(ren).
