Protect Parental Rights And The Child's Best Interests In Your Custody Case

With nearly 50 years in the practice of family law, Budlong & Budlong, LLC, stands for both children's rights and parental rights. Our divorce and child custody lawyers are available to advise and represent you with a high priority being your children's well-being during a time of changing family structure. Your interests and custody rights as a parent are also vitally important to your children's stability after a separation or divorce.

Challenges Along The Way

We understand the strong emotional aspects for parents engaged in child custody disputes. At the same time, we are well-versed in custody laws of the state of Connecticut designed to protect children's welfare. We are prepared to help you navigate family law court systems that may have a long-term impact on your relationship with your children.

Depending on the facts in your case, you may seek or end up with one or more of these temporary or long-term outcomes:

  • Joint physical custody (your child will live with each of you part of the time)
  • Joint legal custody (both of you will have say over important decisions for your child)
  • Sole physical custody (the child will live exclusively with one parent)
  • Sole legal custody (one parent will have the ability to make decisions in the child's life)

The Path To Resolution

You have come to the right place if you seek an attorney who will help you strike the right balance for your family's sake. If you work with our legal team during your divorce or separation, we will help you discover the right course of action, which may be one or more of these pathways:

  • Negotiations involving the other parent and most likely, his or her attorney
  • Mediation
  • Litigation

Child custody cases often require the input from experts such as child psychologists, educators and medical care professionals. Our years of experience may work in your favor as we can help you tap into a vast wealth of resources that have worked well for past clients of our Hartford family law firm.
