The Children Come First

Protecting Your Parental Rights

If you are a parent who is about to be divorced in Connecticut, your child custody and visitation rights should be protected at all times by an experienced lawyer who has your best interests — and those of your child — at heart.

At The Law Offices of James A. Cuddy, LLC, we offer experienced representation and personal service in a broad range of family law matters — from formulation of parenting plans for custody and visitation, to mediation of child support issues and any modification of parental responsibilities after a divorce settlement agreement is finalized.

Helping You Through The Process

Our skilled attorney can explain the distinction between physical custody — the child's physical residence, with a single parent or time divided between parents — and legal custody, which permits a parent to make decisions about a child's health, welfare and education. If the appointment of a guardian ad litem is necessary for disputes and inquiries into claims from either parent, Mr. Cuddy can make recommendations based on your wishes and the facts of the case.

Making Changes, Enforcing Orders

James Cuddy makes sure that you understand your rights, options and obligations. For instance, if custody and visitation responsibilities are not being fulfilled after a divorce, we can discuss the possibility of a court order to enforce them, or a modification of a visitation schedule in the event of a remarriage, relocation and other circumstances that come up in everyday life.
