Call the Troy J. Leavitt Law Firm, LLC at (816) 228-6000 to learn more about how we can help you with your child custody case.
In Missouri and Kansas, there is both physical custody, describing where the children live and legal custody, which involves decision-making powers. We can fight to make sure you are awarded custody that is beneficial to your children and your relationship with them. Our Blue Springs family lawyer has helped many clients and can provide you with detailed and aggressive legal representation.
The best way to determine child custody and visitation rights is through the agreement of both parents. Otherwise, the court — through a judge who is entirely unfamiliar with the children — will make that decision for them. As a father, Troy knows that it is important to always keep the best interests of children in mind, so he encourages parents to create parenting plans among themselves whenever possible. When this is not possible, we work hard in negotiation and in court to ensure that you are given a fair amount of time with your children.
