Complex Child Custody

Complex custody is a term of art used to refer to parenting issues that do not fall squarely into the pattern of a shared parenting schedule following a divorce. These are often issues that involve parental fitness, drug abuse, and child abuse/neglect. The Department of Child Safety may be involved based on allegations of abuse or maltreatment. Interjurisdictional/multijurisdictional and Hague Convention cases may also qualify as complex.

Representative Cases

Concurrent representation of parents in interrelated family court, juvenile court (dependency/severance), and criminal court matters.
