Child Custody

Child Custody

Child custody is a very highly contested issue. Whether you are dealing with child custody as part of a divorce or not, a knowledgeable lawyer can assist you in determining how best to handle the situation.

At the Law Offices of Christine J. Klein, child custody cases are handled as efficiently and compassionately as possible. We understand the emotional impact that these cases have on clients and their children, taking steps to prevent further stress and trauma. We understand the seriousness of these cases and are able to deal with the legal aspect as well as help our clients through this emotionally taxing time.

There are many aspects of child custody that may affect your situation. Attorney Christine Klein has handled many child custody cases and can explain how the below types of custody and visitation may apply in your case:

  • Legal custody
  • Physical custody
  • Joint custody
  • Visitation

Modification of Custody Orders

After a child custody order has been created, it is still open to modification. We can assist clients in seeking the modification of a child custody order. We can deal with seeking the enforcement of custody and visitation rights as well.


One issue that arises frequently is relocation. This means that one parent, the primary physical custodian, is seeking to move out-of-state with their child. This situation often arises after a custody order has been established. A relocation must be addressed as soon as possible to ensure that the custody order is properly modified and that the move is the child’s best interests.

Client Reviews

I used Christine's services to create my will, healthcare proxy, and real estate purchase. She was always available to answer my questions and explained what I needed to know in a clear and easy to understand way. I recommend anyone to contact Christine for a consultation regarding your legal needs.

Attorney Klein represented me in the adoption of my daughter and is working again as I adopt my son. Her knowledge of the law and degree qualify her but it is her patience, kindness, clarity and confidence which distinguish her. I am certain mine is not the only family thanking her.
