Looking Out For A Child’s Best Interests
In many cases, such as those concerning adoption, child custody and visitation, the court always uses a child’s best interests as its guide when making decisions. Children’s best interests come first at Robbie Byers, PLLC as well, particularly in contested divorces. Issues between two parents should stay between them and not affect their children.
In Mississippi, a parent can have legal custody, which is the right to make important decisions about a child, and/or physical custody, which is the amount of time the child spends with the parent. One parent can have sole custody of either of these, or both parents can share joint custody. Joint custody is often preferred by the courts as being in the child’s best interests unless there are factors that prove otherwise. Studies are showing that children do better when they have a strong, loving relationship with both parents.
We can help you keep your focus on the future for you and your children. Whether this is your first time in court or you are requesting a modification of a past order, Ms. Byers will explain the process and help you every step of the way.

In these cases, the spouses have reached an agreement, but they will still need an attorney to handle all aspects of the marital dissolution without having to go to court. Our services will help ensure that the process goes smoothly.
