Family Law Lawyers for Custody and Access

For clients with children, determining custody and access is one of the most important requirements of the separation and divorce process. The primary concern for parents ending a relationship is the care and protection of their children. Mills & Mills LLP has been advising and representing clients in custody and access negotiations for over 130 years. We approach this issue with professionalism and compassion, providing our clients with the benefit of our experience.

In an ideal situation, the parties will agree to terms with respect to the custody and care of their children as part of a formal parenting plan that forms part of a separation agreement. This provides all parties with the benefit of clear guidelines and rules setting out the rights and obligations for the parents. Our lawyers work with parents to come up with a plan that is amenable to both parties, as we believe that the best solution is for the parents to agree to terms without court intervention where possible. If it becomes necessary, our lawyers will defend the rights of our clients in mediation or in court.
