Counsel for Parenting Plans & Custody Litigation

At Patton & Pittman, our goal is to secure a fair custody and visitation settlement through mediation or some other amicable process, setting aside egos and resentments so as to build a parenting plan that works best for the child. But if that is simply not possible, then we are ready to litigate your case at trial. You can depend on our experienced litigation team.

  • In determining a custody and visitation court order, family courts generally factor in:
  • The quality of the child’s relationships with each parent
  • The child’s relationships with siblings and other relatives, as well as in the community and school
  • Any history of domestic abuse or substance abuse
  • The wishes of the child, particularly if 12 years old or more

Courts typically want to award joint custody so that the child benefits from having both parents in their life, and a court will also want to promote continuity in the kid’s life as much as possible. But each case is unique, and our Clarksville custody and visitation lawyers are ready to work one-on-one with you to ensure that we understand your family dynamic and your children’s needs. We are ready to work tirelessly to make sure that the court sees what is best for your children, and then makes that a reality.
