OF YOUR CUSTODY CASES
Parents play the most important role in the lives of their children. We place a great emphasis on seeking child custody solutions that protect the parent-child relationship.
Child custody cases are always difficult and emotional. With a child involved, you have to be careful about how you handle custody cases. There are many factors and circumstances that motivate the court to make the decision. Our attorneys can help you put your case together and fight for you and your child in the courtroom.
THIRD PARTY CUSTODY
Third-Party Custody refers to people other than a biological or adoptive parent who seeks legal authority similar to that of a parent. This may happen if the child’s natural parent is unwilling, unable, or legally declared unfit to fulfill the parental role. The following are all areas where non-parental parties should seek council to fight for their rights.
- Grandparent or other relatives who believe the children are in a harmful or at-risk situation and that neither of the parents is able or fit to provide proper care
- Someone who is already caring for children who are not your own but may need the legal right to make medical decisions and collect child support to provide for them
- Young parent who is being unfairly denied parental rights
- “De facto” parent fulfilling the role of mother or father to a significant other’s children, when the parent is not concerned or involved
Other Areas of service we provide for Third-Party Custody:
- Grandparent Visitation

“We chose Shawnah as she was highly recommended from a friend. Her knowledge and experience in the foster care system helped us through a difficult adoption. She was straight forward with us, understood our concerns, and we appreciated her willingness to fight for us!”
Foster Care/Adoption Case
“As a father in the state of Kansas, obtaining and continuing to obtain custody is almost unheard of. I am proud to say I represent the small group to which this applies thanks to Shawnah and her expertise. Her ethical standards and her ability to make you feel like your fight is her fight is second to none.”
“Interviewing many attorneys for my divorce I went with Shawnah because her first concern was my children rather than the financial portion of the divorce. All the other attorneys wanted to do discuss was how hard the financial issues of the divorce would be tricky or hard. My first concern was making sure my children were safe. Shawnah has always worked toward their safety.”
