Oklahoma City Child Custody Attorney
Protecting your relationship with your child is often the main concern of parents facing a divorce. The dedicated Oklahoma City child custody attorneys at the Law Office of Lisé L. Edwards understand how meaningful the parent-child bond is for both parties. Whether you are a father seeking custody for the first time, a parent facing a divorce that wants to understand how custody applies to their case, or if you need modification of existing custody and time-sharing plans, we will provide experienced legal support.
As dedicated and responsive child custody attorneys, we work hard to establish an equitable custody plan that works for your schedule and your life. There are many different potential outcomes to a custody case, from sole legal custody to joint legal and physical custody. Our experienced child custody law firm will assist you with determining what type of custody is most suitable for your case, will help you understand how custody will impact you and your relationship with your child, or can help you fight for initial custody or modify custody arrangements for your minor child.
Ideally, parents work together to develop a custody plan that works for them, which is then introduced into the courts for consideration or approval. However, not all parents are willing to work together, or sometimes emotions can run so high that planning together is not a practical solution. Our child custody lawyers help you work with the other parent to create a plan that is manageable for you, while allowing each parent an appropriate amount of time, depending on your unique situation.
Every custody situation is unique. Whether you are seeking sole primary custody for the safety of your child, or want to create a child custody arrangement that provides suitable relationship-building time for both parents, our Oklahoma City child custody attorneys can help.

Determining Oklahoma Child Custody
When Oklahoma courts award custody, there are many factors that contribute to their decision; however, the overriding goal is to determine a solution that is in the “best interests of the physical, mental, and moral welfare of the child.”
If one parent has a history of physical abuse, alcohol or substance abuse issues, is unable to provide a stable home life, or is otherwise unable or unwilling to either care for their child or make good legal decisions on their behalf, then their rights may be limited. Each situation is unique and is handled as such.
While no attorney can guarantee particular results, our Oklahoma child custody lawyers are motivated to fight for your rights of access to your minor child. Whether you require assistance with custody planning and strategy, preparing documentation to support your logic, or need a legal expert to deliver a compelling argument on your behalf, the Law Office of Lisé L. Edwards will work diligently on your behalf.
Custody Modification & Enforcement
Even after a custody plan has been determined and activated by the courts, everything may not always go to plan. There may be situations that arise that may require you to modify your custody agreement, such as changes to your employment or living arrangements.
Our dedicated child custody modification attorneys will review your desired modifications and help you create a new plan that will work well for your new schedule. Our goal is to help you achieve a relationship that suits your lifestyle and desires.
If your child’s other parent is not complying with defined and court-approved custody arrangments, such as refusing to drop the kids off on time, you have legal recourse. We can assist with all aspects of child custody, parental rights, and paternity.
