Child Custody & Parenting Time

At Bacon Wilson, we have decades of experience protecting the parental rights of both mothers and fathers in matters involving custody and parenting time arrangements.

Divorce is hard on children, and our lawyers strive to resolve these matters as efficiently and painlessly as possible. Whether we are negotiating a parenting plan or representing you in court, your child's interests are always our primary concern.

Unique Challenges In Custody Matters

This area of law is extremely complex and specific. Some parents are unable to reach decisions about custody on their own and enlist the services of a guardian ad litem (GAL), who conducts an investigation for the court and makes recommendations and conclusions about custody to the judge from a neutral vantage point.

The family law attorneys at Bacon Wilson can advise you on the full range of issues that may arise in custody and visitation proceedings. We are proud to offer a depth of experience and unsurpassed dedication to client communication and service.

To learn more and arrange a consultation, please contact us online or call 413-693-2787. From offices in Springfield, Northampton, Amherst, and Westfield, we serve clients throughout the Commonwealth.
