Deciding On Child Custody And Parenting Issues

It can be challenging to raise children together following separation. Conflicts can arise over support payments, living arrangements, parenting schedules, and decision-making for children.

At Long Family Law Group LLP, our lawyers are committed to assisting you and your former partner to develop a parenting plan that puts your child’s best interests first. Based in Edmonton, Alberta, we offer legal advice and support for separated parents to develop a reasonable and fair parenting arrangement following their divorce or separation.

Understanding The Issues And Providing Legal Assistance

All separated or divorced parents will still have to maintain some sort of relationship with each other as their child grows up. Our legal team’s goal is to help you define what that parenting relationship will look like, and avoid conflict or toxic situations that could affect your child.

We will assist you to identify solutions which will benefit the child regarding:

  • Decision-making;
  • Custody and access;
  • Parenting plans and schedules;
  • Extra-curricular activities; and
  • Vacations and holidays.

Helping You Make The Decisions That Are Right For You

At Long Family Law Group LLP, we know that every family is different, so every solution will be different as well.

In order to provide our clients with a customized legal strategy, our family lawyers take the time to really get to know you and your family. Developing a positive, professional relationship with you allows us to identify what is important to you, and how to support you in achieving the outcomes you wish to pursue.
