Child Custody

When parents face a family law conflict, like a divorce, the effects of legal action on their children are often some of their greatest concerns. At Ostertag O’Leary Barrett & Faulkner, we understand. Our team of experienced attorneys works hard to protect the best interests of children in child custody matters — advocating strongly for parents in matters like visitation and relocation of a parent.

Ostertag O’Leary Barrett & Faulkner uses more than 90 years of collective experience to represent parents and grandparents in a wide range of child custody and visitation matters. We handle determination of child custody in a divorce or in a non-marital situation. We also help clients enforce or modify existing child custody orders.


Our attorneys also protect children and family relationships by offering highly-qualified legal representation in the area of guardianships. We understand that families often face unique challenges, and that parents are sometimes unable to care for their children. Our attorneys take action to put guardianships in place and to protect parents’ rights to be with their children.
