Considerate Washington Lawyers Help With Child Custody Issues
Caring attorneys protect the rights of parents in the Bellingham area
No parent should have to endure the devastation of losing precious time with a child or forfeiting essential parental rights because of an unjust custody or visitation decision. When the welfare and security of your child are at stake, it is essential to enlist a strong legal representative to look out for your child’s best interests. A knowledgeable attorney can present your case and advocate for your rights to raise your child in a healthy, thriving environment. At Beaty Family Law, we help with Washington child custody disputes in the Bellingham area and throughout Washington. We are committed to protecting your right to maintain a meaningful relationship with your child.
Strategic mediators encourage cooperation in mediation
Children are best served when parents maintain a cordial relationship. Through the structured process of mediation, parents can set aside enmity and agree on key points concerning their children. Mediation can be a highly effective tool, helping you preserve your children’s well-being and the stability of their lives during the turbulent process of divorce. The predictability of mediation reduces the stress of child custody conflicts and puts important child-rearing decisions in your hands, rather than in the hands of the court. Our attorneys can help guide negotiations toward agreements that protect your child’s best interests and your parental rights.
