With more than 50 years in the field helping Stony Plain clients through one of the toughest legal situations—divorce—we have the skills and the experience needed to get you and your family the best results.
Our child custody lawyers understand that divorce is a tough time emotionally as well as financially. Let us take some of the stress off of your shoulders. Give Verhaeghe Law Offices a call today to find out more.
Many of our Stony Plain clients come to us with the goal of achieving full custody. While these types of custody battles are never simple, Verhaeghe Law Offices can be relied on to get the necessary evidence in order and work closely with those who hire us to secure the best results.
Full custody awards one parent primary care, with the option to allow visitation to the other parent, fully at their discretion.
Fully custody may not always be guaranteed on the first attempt but our child custody lawyers will continue to fight for your child even if only shared custody is awarded to begin with.
There are two shared custody options. Shared is the closest to a 50/50 split and can involve one or more children. Split custody occurs when there are two or more children involved and one lives primarily at one parent's home with the other living primarily at the other parent's home.
In most amicable divorces, shared custody is what is aimed for, and it is much easier to secure than sole, full custody.
How Long Does a Custody Battle Last?
Every situation is different. In more than 50 years of working with Stony Plain divorce clients, we have witnessed a wide variety of family dynamics and hearing results.
The best answer we can give when discussing time in a custody battle is, it will take as long as it will take.
Ensuring you and your child or children have the best representation in this difficult time is important to the lawyers at Verhaeghe Law Offices. There is no standard answer for custody battle timing, but an estimate could be provided after our first meeting.
What Expenses Should I Expect?
Like with length of time, expenses for custody rights to be determined can range quite a bit. We would recommend budgeting for a minimum of $3,000-6,000, but in no way assume that this will be your total expense at the end of the process.
