Are Child Custody Issues A Sticking Point In Your Divorce?

In many family law cases, the law seems secondary in importance. This is true when the case affects your ability to make parental decisions and the scheduling of your parenting time. You want to be available to your child, and we want to help make that possible. We can help work out child custody and parenting time schedules that are amenable to both parents.

If you would like to discuss your child custody issues, you can call us at 219-961-2166, or contact us by email to schedule your initial consultation.

At the Law Offices of J. Douglas Angel, we believe in protecting your child's best interests. Unless it is unsafe, we want both parents to enjoy positions of influence and be active participants in their child's life. The legal advocacy we provide reflects a blend of fidelity to state law and legal representation that we customize to our clients' individual needs.

Helping You Make Informed Decisions

Parents who are able to put aside their anger and resentment can often make better decisions about raising their children than a court can. For several years, we have referred our family law clients to the following websites to help them in these efforts:

The courts in Lake County have now adopted new rules that require parents to do the assignments at these websites. We will help you understand Lake County's new rules that require cooperative efforts to try to avoid parental conflict.

We are happy to explain the differences between legal, physical, sole and joint custody. If you are confused about Indiana's parental relocation statute, as it relates to child custody or visitation, we can help clear up the confusion for you.

An Indiana Family Lawyer Prepared To Protect Your Rights

Attorney J. Douglas Angel is an aggressive advocate for child custody rights and client goals. When he sets out to protect your rights in child custody matters, he will take you down a legal path that is tailored to your case.

Conflict in family law cases is often destructive and sometimes dangerous. Litigating family law cases does not always resolve the conflict — it may heighten it. Such conflict between parents has a detrimental and lasting impact upon the children.

Cooperation May Be The Key To Your Case

We strive to minimize the conflict, and to avoid leaving our clients and their families with a legacy of a scorched earth environment. As a result, we first try to be problem solvers by seeking a cooperative resolution of problems through negotiation or mediation. But, if those efforts are frustrated, we utilize our years of experience to protect your interests through litigation when necessary.

When you come to the Law Offices of J. Douglas Angel, you are assured of receiving experienced and dedicated personal service, no matter what twist or turn your case may take. We look forward to hearing from you and discussing your child custody goals. Contact our law offices in Munster today.
