Any other issues that may arise

Every divorce is unique and you need an attorney on your side who can help you through it. The attorneys at Coy, Gilbert, Shepherd & Wilson are prepared to address your specific needs and help you in every circumstance and throughout every stage of the divorce process.

Custody and Visitation

Custody and visitation arrangements for your children can be the biggest decisions you and your spouse make during a divorce. Because of their importance and the emotional nature of dealing with the future of your children, a great amount of conflict can arise from custody fights. A skilled lawyer can provide much needed advice in these stressful circumstances. The best custody attorneys will always remember that the best interests of the child or children comes before everything else and that that means something different in every unique case.

At Coy, Gilbert, Shepherd & Wilson we strongly encourage our clients to resolve custody issues through mediation and negotiations as this generally leads to the least amount of conflict. However, our attorneys are fully prepared to aggressively litigate your case using their vast skill and experience.
