We Understand The Importance Of A Beneficial Custody Agreement

It does not matter whether you are going through a divorce or you are unmarried. You want to do what is best for your children. A comprehensive parenting plan, including child custody and visitation agreements, can go a long way in helping your family move forward. An experienced attorney can protect your parental rights now and into the future. He or she should help you draft a fair agreement and be able advocate for the best interest of your child(ren).

At the offices of Douglas Cohn Attorney at Law, we provide our clients with knowledgeable counsel for their most difficult family law concerns. With more than 20 years of experience, Bethesda child custody attorney Douglas Cohn can help you understand your rights and options, so you can come up with a parenting plan that works for you and your kids.

Compassionate Family Law Representation Putting Your Children First

Whenever possible, we try to help our clients work with their co-parent to develop parenting plans designed to meet the specific needs of their children. We offer collaborative law and mediation services to our clients, because these options offer families more control. However, attorney Cohn is an experienced litigator, and he will be ready to protect your rights in court if a fair agreement cannot be reached.

As a lawyer who has represented mothers, fathers AND children, attorney Cohn understands the dynamics of an often complicated situation. He can advocate and advise for the best possible solution for you and your child.

The courts in both Maryland and Washington, D.C., are going to do what they believe is in the best interest of your children. Understanding their goals can help you determine how you want your plan to work. The family courts have the following concerns:

  • Children should not be traumatized
  • Children should feel comfortable to live in two homes
  • Children should feel loved and supported by both parents

Some parents want to keep children from the other, but this will not happen unless the court decides the other person is an unfit parent.

Our firm also recognizes that families change. You want to provide the most stability possible for your children, but the needs of a seven-year-old are different from the needs of a 14-year-old. We can help you obtain modifications when necessary.
