Beaverton Custody Attorney
Perhaps the most difficult part of a divorce is child(ren) custody. Emotional upset aside, there are so many practical factors which go into this ruling – lack of funding, lack of employment or even additional responsibilities which require time away from raising your child(ren). Jessica Larsen, a Beaverton custody attorney, is adept at helping her clients walk through these situations, taking into account your personal goals as well as what is in the best interest of your child(ren) to come to the best possible situation for all parties involved.
Let’s face it – divorce is hard. Custody is often harder. And the realities factor into your own emotional hardships as well as your child and their other parent. It takes a unique person to walk alongside others in this journey. With her years of experience and proven track record, Jessica is the one you want sitting next to you in this season. Jessica originally received her degree in Psychology from Willamette University before going into law school and spends her time advocating for domestic abuse victims. She knows what it means to be in crisis and she knows how to walk people out of it into a better future.
What’s more – she’s local! As a Beaverton custody lawyer, Jessica understands the Oregon court system, and what’s needed to build a strong case while minimizing the impact on the parties involved. She will work with you to understand what your child(ren) has/have received in the past and what they need for a bright future in this great state!
The hope is that your case is easy and all parties reach an amicable agreement. However, some cases get more complex and require elevated skill and knowledge to acquire child custody rights. Losing a job, problems between spouses, physical abuse, emotional abuse, poor home or school environment and financial viability are some (however, certainly not all!) of the issues that can make a case more complex. Sometimes cases include histories of immoral or risky behavior, legal records and/or jail sentencing. Understanding the situation, Jessica can increase the strength of your claims and work with you, and other experts in the vast world of child welfare, for what’s best and right for your particular child(ren).
Adding to the complexity of child custody, support and visitation, many people choose to move out of state after a divorce and thus move to a different jurisdiction, placing them under unique laws. It is crucial to obtain a lawyer who is forward thinking and protects your family under all situations that may arise both now and in the future. What happens if you move out of state? What happens when your child(ren) turn 18? What happens if the other parent moves out of state or misses child support payments? What happens if the safety of their environment changes? These are all questions that need to be drawn up and agreed to. Even if the divorce is amicable, things can change. They could change for the better, and we hope they do, or they could change for the worse, though we sure hope they don’t! Regardless of what may come, Jessica is here to protect you, your rights as a parent, your child(ren) and their rights. The goal is to enable you to simply be a parent. You deserve that. Whereas the emotional stresses of a divorce can be daunting, Jessica is here to ensure you have the peace of mind to love your kid(s) and work to move forward in a new chapter.
