Child Custody & Visitation

Child Custody Lawyers in Quincy, MA

Serving Individuals & Families Throughout the Greater Boston Metro Area

When it comes to child custody and visitation, the goal is to do what is in the best interest of the child. In most cases, that means making arrangements that allow the child to spend time with both parents. Whether you need help with child custody during a divorce or as a result of a paternity action, the lawyers at Davis Law Group can help.

Determining Child Custody And Visitation Arrangements

Of all family law matters, child custody is one of the most complex. Terms like sole custody, joint custody, physical custody and legal custody are thrown around frequently. Our Quincy child custody attorneys will define them for you and educate you about how they apply.

Some people believe that courts are biased in favor of mothers. That is not true. Fathers’ rights are just as important as mothers’ rights. Ultimately, the goal is to reach a parenting plan that allows both parents to be involved in the child’s upbringing. The specifics of that plan can vary dramatically from one case to the next.

Child custody and visitation arrangements will be based on a variety of factors. Which parent has the child been living with for the last six months? Have both parents developed a personal and parental relationship with the child? Have both parents exercised parental responsibility? Are there extenuating circumstances involved, like drug or alcohol abuse? Is one parent considering relocation to another city, state or country? We will review all of these factors and pursue an outcome that will keep your relationship with your child strong.

Can Child Custody Be Changed?

When circumstances require it, child custody and visitation schedules can be changed. Perhaps a new job, remarriage or the birth of another child means a change is necessary. Perhaps the child has simply gotten older and his or her needs have changed. If you are interested in changing your parenting arrangements, we can assist.

    "Jay and the firm have cared about my specific needs as a client."
    I have used the services of Davis Law Group a number of times during the past 20 years and found them to be an extremely professional and caring law firm. Specifically I have used them for real estate transactions and for estate planning, wills, and healthcare proxies, with Jay Davis and Maryanne McGonagle as my primary attorneys. Whereas some law firms use boiler plates and treat clients as transactions, Jay and the firm have cared about my specific needs as a client and customized to those needs. I highly recommend this firm.
    - Rob

    I had an all around great experience working with Ryan Medeiros and Davis Law Group. Highly recommend! Ryan was knowledgeable and accessible, and knew what it would take to get the job done. I will definitely be using them again!
    - Mark
    "They have always done right by us."
    Three generations of my family have trusted Davis Law Group with our legal needs and they have always done right by us. Since April I have been working non-stop with Mary Anne McGonagle and Jay Davis to navigate and probate an excruciatingly-complicated estate. Both Mary Anne and Jay have gone out of their way numerous times on my behalf and have vigorously protected my interests in the face of some fairly significant headwinds. I could not be more thankful for, and appreciative of, their attention and the care they have demonstrated for my family.
    - Bryan
    "What she did was truly above and beyond my expectation."
    I benefited a lot from a recent consultation with Mary Anne. She is very knowledgeable in the area of landlord-tenant law, but what expressed me the most is her ethics. Although it was a free consultation, she still took it very seriously and spent the time to read my files prior to the call. During the session, she made complex legal issues easy to understand, analyzed my case and offer very good advice. She also worked very hard and communicated with me even after her normal work hours. What she did was truly above and beyond my expectation.
