Estate law and family law in North Carolina

Protecting What Matters Most In Child Custody Cases

For parents going through divorce, finding a fair child custody and visitation arrangement is a major issue. By working with a knowledgeable lawyer, you can ensure your rights are adequately protected. Based in New Bern, our lawyers help families reach child custody solutions that are in the best interests of the children. Our law firm, Quay & Associates, P.A., brings more than a decade of focused experience to family law issues.

Providing Pragmatic Counsel Based On Years Of Experience

Many people come to our law firm with the hopes of obtaining sole custody, or at least having their children most of the time. In certain situations, this may be a possibility, but in the majority of cases, judges prefer the child spends meaningful time with each parent. The trend in North Carolina is for each parent to have joint custody.

When you work with a New Bern child custody attorney at our law firm, we will listen closely to you as you describe your situation. We will then candidly discuss with you the advantages and disadvantages of each course of action. In many cases, a negotiated child custody arrangement will lead to a fair outcome that protects your, and your child’s, rights.

Are You Hoping To Relocate To Or From Craven County?

When one parent wants to move away with the children, it can create a number of serious challenges. Under North Carolina law, if a parent wants to move a great distance with the children, he or she must obtain permission from either the other parent or the court. This is particularly common in military divorce cases, when one parent is deployed overseas or transferred to another base. If you would like to relocate, or if you oppose such a move, we can help you understand your rights and take action on your behalf.
