A divorce severs the legal and financial bonds of marriage, but when there are children involved the family needs to be maintained and nurtured. Hansen Legal & Mediation Services approaches custody of children as a problem to be solved, not a prize to be won.
Through negotiations or mediation, I help clients find workable solutions to the complex considerations of child custody and parenting arrangements. I believe that the courtroom is a last resort for determining the realities of co-parenting.
My name is Angela Hansen. I am an experienced family law attorney and certified mediator who counsels moms and dads in Rockville and throughout Montgomery County, Maryland.
Montgomery County Co-Parenting Attorney
I guide parents toward practical child custody solutions that keep both parents involved and encourage healthy cooperation and communication. I have helped clients find workable compromises to complex and emotionally charged issues, including:
- Primary or shared physical custody
- Access (visitation)
- Legal custody (shared decision-making)
- Parenting agreements (schedules and rules)
- Child support
- Use and possession of the family home
- Parent relocation
- Paternity (parental rights and support obligations)
- Interference with parental rights
Sometimes litigation cannot be avoided, but I do not fan those flames. I believe that parents should create parenting plans, not a judge or opposing lawyers. I am certified to conduct family law mediations, acting as a neutral facilitator to offer ideas and help parents capitalize on common ground.
Your children need you to work together, even though you are not a couple anymore. If you are seeking a Rockville child custody lawyer to guide the way, I offer a free consultation. Call (301) 517-5729 for a free consultation, or contact me online.
