Child Custody

Resolving issues vital to your child’s future

  • Juvenile delinquency and dependency proceedings
  • Decisions related to religion, education and upbringing of the child

Advantages of mediation
Children are best served when parents maintain a cordial relationship. Through the structured process of mediation, couples can often set aside hostility and can agree on key decisions affecting their children. Mediation can be a highly effective tool for parents to preserve their children’s well-being and the stability of their lives during the turbulent process of divorce. Mediation takes some of the stress out of child custody conflicts, and it puts important child-rearing decisions in the hands of the parents rather than the court. Bruce A. Mandel at the Law Offices of Bruce A. Mandel meticulously develops mediation strategies that carefully guide the negotiating process toward healthy resolution.

Supporting litigation
In some cases, litigation is necessary to protect a child’s best interests. When one parent refuses to compromise or they express hostility toward the other parent, negotiations fail. Sometimes a parent may even pose a danger to the child’s well-being. In these cases, litigation is the most appropriate forum for establishing parental rights. Our firm’s methodical approach to litigation enables you to feel confident that your children are protected and that your parental rights are secure.
