Child Custody and Visitation

A Law Firm That Gets What You Are Going Through

Few things are more difficult than child custody and visitation disputes. Amid all the uncertainty of divorce, child custody matters are often the most stressful.

At Schmitz Law, P.C., we understand what you are going through. Joe Schmitz is an experienced child custody lawyer who has three children himself. He understands how important your children are to you and how difficult it is to consider not being able to see them every day.

If that is not possible, we will diligently compile and present all evidence to the court regarding what is best for your children. As a seasoned trial attorney, Attorney Schmitz understands what local courts and judges look for when deciding child custody. This practical experience benefits our clients in numerous ways:
