Why Marina R. Taylor is the Best Child Custody Lawyer in Brandon

Experienced Negotiator

Litigation is always the last resort for an experienced child custody lawyer. A out-of-court agreement focused on securing an amicable custody arrangement for your child is always a preferable course of action. A well-negotiated compromise can ensure that you don’t have to rely on the court to make a decision; it also protects your child from the scrutiny and stress that arises during a court hearing. Finally, a litigation process can be extremely expensive to go through, so even a drawn-out agreement process can be preferable.

Puts Your Child’s Best Interests First

When courts are forced to make a decision regarding the custody of your child, they do so, on the basis of a child’s best interest. The criteria for best interest includes amongst other things:

  • The child’s desires
  • The physical and mental condition of all parties involved
  • Parent’s moral character and reliability
  • Parenting ability
  • Financial circumstances of each parent,
  • The stability of your home environment and living circumstances,
  • Any prior evidence of domestic abuse or substance abuse,
  • The development of the child in terms of schooling and other relationships.
  • Willingness to cooperate with the other parent.
  • Who handled primary caretaking for the child?

As an experienced child custody lawyer Marina can fight for your rights in line with each of these aspects throughout the duration of your case, even as she ensures that your child secures the best outcomes possible.

Child Support Attorney

Child support lawyers for fathers are hard to come by. While many lawyers are focused on ensuring that ex-husband make payments in sufficient amounts in a consistent manner, fewer attorneys work to make sure that these individuals aren’t agreeing to an inequitable distribution of their hard-earned incomes.   Marina R. Taylor can provide the guidance, and expertise you need during any child support negotiations.

Courtroom Confidence

There are a number of extenuating circumstances which can significantly change the nature and complexity of a child custody case.

  • Your spouse may change their mind during the negotiation process and argue to change the terms of the custody arrangement.
  • If your spouse moves to a different State, the jurisdictional issues involved could change the legal reality of the situation.
  • You may have reason to believe that your child would be in danger under the care of your spouse.
  • Your ex-spouse may break the terms of your custody agreement by denying you visitation or by refusing to return your child at the prescribed time.
  • You may be required to attend court-mandated classes for a variety of issues including: anger management or drug/alcohol abuse. In this case it may become far more difficult for you to negotiation an equitable custody sharing agreement.
  • You or your spouse may have remarried.

Marina R. Taylor brings an impressive background and proven track record in family law, to every child custody case. No matter what particular details of your situation are, Marina can offer you intelligent legal advice and compassionate guidance. Let her take the burden of negotiations, paperwork, and possible litigation off your shoulders.

If an agreement can’t be reached on the negotiating table, then Marina is more than prepared to fight tooth and nail for your rights in front of a judge and jury. When the other party to your divorce isn’t willing to respect your visitation rights, or they’re actively working to harm the health and welfare of your child, Marina will work to prepare evidence and file petitions in anticipation of the trial process. Ultimately her aim is to secure the happiness and future comfort of your child.
Avoid Costly Mistakes

The last thing you want to do is agree to a custody arrangement that grants you unfavorable terms. As an experienced child visitation lawyer, Marina has seen many instances where parents signed away their rights because of a lack of adequate legal knowledge. It’s also very possible that you might fail to make proper filings in light of constantly changing all codes, which could see you hit with hefty fines, and may ultimately hurt your chances of securing an equitable agreement.

Marina’s experience both inside and outside the courtroom will help you resolve the legal complexities surrounding your case efficiently, and effectively.

We retained Marina Taylor to represent us in an alimony modification case. With her knowledge and no-nonsense approach she has given us a better chance for the outcome we are seeking. Ms. Taylor thinks outside the box while sticking to the facts. Not only was she able to prove a decrease in our circumstances she was able to prove a substantial increase in the ex's circumstances. I would highly recommend Ms. Taylor for your family law needs.
