It’s 4:00 on a Friday and you call my office upset because your ex-husband picked the kids up on the second Tuesday after the Third Wednesday from your Cousin’s house instead of the Wawa. I am silent and you can’t figure out why. Mostly it’s because I don’t memorize your custody order. Does that shock you? Well it shouldn’t.
Most people come to an attorney hoping that they can get a great solution for their family. What they don’t want, is a cookie cutter solution. I often tell clients that there is no such thing as a standard custody order. Some people are horrified by that notion, but after they reflect, they realize that it is a good thing. It is important that your custody attorney craft a solution that works for your family. That means that every case I handle is different. You are unique and so is your family. Don’t be afraid to ask for a unique custody solution that best fits your family. However, try to keep it simple enough that the kids can understand. They really shouldn’t need a personal assistant to figure out when they will see their parents.
