Pensacola Child Custody Attorney

Making Sure Your Voice is Heard during Child Custody Disputes

Determining placement and care responsibilities for your children can be one of the most important aspects of your divorce proceedings. Unfortunately, child custody issues can also rank among the most difficult matters addressed during the dissolution of your marriage.

At the law office of Michael J. Griffith, P.A., our Pensacola child custody attorneys have the knowledge and skills needed to help you voice your opinions on all matters relating to the custody of your children. In more than 40 years of combined practice, we have helped divorcing parents work through even the most heated child custody disputes.

Helping You Turn Your Child Custody Goals into Reality

We believe that the first step in resolving any child custody dispute should always be to help you create realistic expectations. Despite your greatest desires, sole custody is rarely awarded by a judge, and often requires extenuating circumstances to even be considered. By working with you to understand your custody goals, and your concerns, we attempt to help you understand what you may expect for your proceedings, and how a realistic outcome to your dispute may look.

Once we understand your goals and have helped you understand the child custody dispute resolution process, we will go to battle to help you obtain the resolution you desire. At every step in your proceedings, our staff will fight to ensure that your voice is heard, and that your opinions are considered. We will not rest until we have exhausted every last legal strategy in pursuit of a custody arrangement that provides a safe and healthy home for your children.

Addressing Concerns that impact Your Children’s Safety

While sole custody judgments have become increasingly uncommon in recent years, a judge may award sole custody in cases involving situations that impact the children’s safety or well-being. We’ve helped countless parents in unfortunate situations involving a spouse with dangerous tendencies or habits, including:

  • Domestic violence
  • Drug or alcohol abuse
  • Mental health issues

In many cases, we have been able to help parents obtain full custody, or supervised visitation that provides an added layer of protection for their children.
