Child Custody & Support

Child custody is often the most critical part of a divorce proceeding and the most difficult process to experience. The Law Office of K. D. White and Attorney White are sensitive to this fact and fight hard to make the process work for our clients. Our firm is skilled and we understand how to help families quickly resolve these highly-sensitive matters. Each parent or relative we represent can rely on our expertise in child custody rights.

Experienced Child Custody Attorney

In reaching a child custody agreement, many people don’t know where to start. It can be difficult to move beyond the emotions and come to consensus. Our experienced child custody attorneys will guide you through the process in a reassuring manner. We carefully explain the rights, laws, and the legal procedure to each client, so that they fully understand their options. We then listen to each client’s priorities and concerns, so that we can accurately articulate and address your wishes to the court.

Best Interest of the Child

In the State of North Carolina, a child’s living arrangements are based on what is best for that child. Determining the child’s “best interest” is at the heart of custody litigation. We pride ourselves on fighting aggressively to present our clients in their most favorable light and protect their children from being drawn into the divorce or separation battle that surrounds cases.
