Protecting Your Parental Rights

A child custody dispute is one of the most sensitive legal issues you can face. While some divorce and family law issues affect your finances, they pale in comparison to a matter that affects the relationship you have with your child.

This is why it is so important to work with an attorney who has experience handling complex and sensitive child custody issues. At Woodward Law Firm, PLLC, we are strong advocates for mothers, fathers and children engaged in child custody matters in Billings and throughout surrounding areas.

Finding Common Ground In Custody Cases

We can help you understand Montana child custody laws and how they apply in your situation. Courts consider many factors when making determinations in child custody cases. The overriding factor in every situation involving a minor child is protecting the best interests of that child.

As you and your ex work together to establish a parenting plan, it is helpful to keep in mind that the child’s best interests outweigh that of either parent. This can help reduce conflict and help disputing parents find common ground.

Our attorneys have extensive experience helping parents reach agreements in custody cases, whether as part of a divorce or in a situation when unmarried parents separate. We are skilled negotiators and employ alternative dispute resolution methods such as mediation when appropriate. When the other party refuses to be reasonable, we are always prepared for aggressive litigation.
