When Does My Child Get to Choose?
When is my child old enough to tell the Judge which parent he/she wants to live with? This is a question that is frequently asked....
Bryan has practiced family law for over 30 years. His skillful and effective advocacy has earned the respect of his clients, as well as judges, colleagues and adversaries. Bryan’s approach starts with a straightforward recognition, namely that a divorce, legal separation or dissolution of a domestic partnership is a process, not simply an event.
An essential part of that process is learning the client’s story. Bryan and his staff provide a safe place for clients to feel comfortable to share their story. He listens. Unlike the approach taken by some that will simply tell the client what they want to hear, Bryan will inform the client of what they need to know, after he learns of the unique facts of your situation.
Through Bryan’s vast experience, he will outline a strategic approach that will provide an action plan to apply the client’s needs to the equitable relief that is available. Bryan’s genuine concern and compassion provides the foundation stones for which he will aggressively advocate for each client with the goal of helping the client navigate through this enormously difficult time.
Starting the legal process for child custody, was a stressful situation for me. No parent wants to
have to go through it, a having to deal with the added stress. I was grateful to have found Bryan,
and working with his team, not only being well rounded dealing with child custody cases and
aspects that accompany, but also giving me sense of mind, and knowing I would get through the
process. I truly appreciated the professionalism, understanding the aspects, and above all,
treating me with care and giving my case, the attention it deserved. I will always be thankful.
I highly recommend Bryan Blodgett if the unfortunate need should arise for a divorce/child custody attorney. In my experience, during this difficult time, it was super helpful to have someone in my corner like Bryan. He listened, asked good questions, let me cry and share my story without judgement, but most importantly he helped me navigate a scary process and acted as a voice of reason and encouraged me not to make permanent decisions on temporary emotions. He gave me peace, support and strength during a very stressful and confusing time. To this day I appreciate the hard work and dedication he put forth on my behalf, which lead to a successful outcome that was best for my children!
