Raising children is a big responsibility.
Most parents cherish the time they spend with their children and value the opportunity to make decisions regarding their education, healthcare and other important life matters. Because child custody arrangements determine the allocation of parental responsibilities and how parenting time will be shared, these situations are often emotionally charged. An endless number of variables come in to play, as well, further complicating the ability to reach an agreement. Having a skilled family law attorney is integral to reaching a custody agreement that works for all parties involved. At Andalman & Flynn, our practiced family law attorneys have more than 60 years of experience negotiating these challenging contracts. If an agreement isn’t possible, you can rely on us to fight with conviction in court to protect your rights, as well as those of your children.
What’s involved in a child custody agreement?
A child custody agreement is a written document outlining the guidelines for child custody between the parents of a child or children. It’s generally issued in connection with a divorce or separation proceeding and may contain various instructions regarding:
- Which parent has primary physical custody of the child
- Which parent is entrusted with legal custody of the child (usually the same parent that is granted physical custody)
- Whether custody will be split equally between the parents, or whether one parent will have more physical custody time
- Visitation schedules for the non-custodial parent
In addition, the custody agreement may address various issues such as child support provisions, and whether or not other parties can assume custody of the child (such as a grandparent or close relative).
At Andalman & Flynn, we understand that the health and well-being of your children are of the utmost importance to you. Protect their future with a solid child custody agreement. Please contact us today to schedule a consultation.

Client Testimonial – Thoughtful Legal Guidance
“I am writing to tell you how very pleased I am with the care and attention that I received from the law firm of Andalman and Flynn. From the outset, I was impressed by the organization of the office, and the thoughtful legal guidance that I received in the areas of family law and landlord-tenant issues. My attorney, Peter Casciano, met with me when I was a walk-in client in distress. He immediately directed me to several public agencies of which I had need, and advised me in the process of becoming a client of the firm. His advice and understanding, on such short notice, was much needed and greatly… appreciated! It gave me a sense of security at a very difficult time. I was deeply impressed by Mr. Casciano’s on-going ability to listen to and understand my point of view. At all times, he provided clear information about various legal options that were open to me. I felt that I was well informed, and that I was not pressured to proceed in a particular direction. Rather, I felt encouraged to take time, to think, and to consider solutions that were most suitable to me and to my situation. It is assumed that an attorney will be knowledgeable in his field. Even so, I was impressed by Mr. Casciano’s easy grasp of any situation that I relayed to him. His recommendations were always sensible, and his skill at making legal options clear and understandable is outstanding! I felt, at all times, that Mr. Casciano was empathetic to my concerns and firm in his determination to protect my interests. Based on my experience, I would recommend Andalman and Flynn to anyone who needs a top-notch attorney. Andalman and Flynn is my law firm of choice!” Very Truly, M.

Client Testimonial – I couldn’t be happier with the result that I got
“I was recommended to Ms Vann from a friend of mine. I couldn’t be happier with the result that I got. I was dealing with custody and financial support issues with the mother of my twin boys and trying in vain to do the right thing by myself. Working with Ms Vann relieved so much of the stress that I was going through. It is about six months since my case was closed and things are still going really well. I only wish that I had contacted her sooner!”
