Child Custody

Carmel Child Custody and Parenting Time Lawyer

Child custody is one of the most difficult issues a parent faces during divorce. Sheila A. Marshall can protect your rights to raise your children in a healthy, thriving environment. For over 31 years, I have represented families in Carmel in all aspects of child custody and visitation, including:

  • Primary and joint custody arrangements
  • Parenting time issues
  • Grandparent visitation
  • Modification of custody and visitation orders
  • Enforcement of orders
  • Juvenile delinquency and dependency proceedings
  • Decisions related to religion, education and
    upbringing of your children

Advantages of Mediation

Children are best served when parents establish a cordial relationship. Through the structured process of mediation, couples can often set aside hostility and agree on key points concerning their children. Mediation can be a highly effective tool for parents to preserve the stability and well-being of their children’s lives during the turbulent process of divorce. The predictability of mediation can relieve the stress of child custody conflicts and put important child-rearing decisions in the parents’ hands rather than in the court’s power. I meticulously develop mediation strategies that guide the negotiating process toward healthy resolution.

We Will Fight For You

In some cases, litigation is necessary to protect your children’s best interests. When a parent refuses to compromise or expresses hostility toward the other parent, negotiations fail. In some cases, a parent poses a danger to the children’s well-being, rendering litigation the most appropriate forum for establishing parental rights. Through my methodical approach to litigation, parents can feel confident that their children are protected and their parental rights are secure.
