Child Custody - Visitation Advice

If you have a custody/visitation order that needs to be modified, you need to clear certain hurdles. If you have not been married to your child's other parent and don't have a custody order, you have joint custody with equal rights. You must file a custody action if you want to change that. We can help you find the best way to get or modify a custody/visitation order.

We had a tough adoption that seemed to drag on with the state. The staff at Otterson Law were tremendously knowledgeable and a huge help to us. The adoption portion was all done quickly and we were very pleased with with their work. We will be using them in the future. Sima T.

Otterson Law & Mediation just finished the adoption of my daughter, Melissa. They did it during COVID and around all the state closures. I was happy with the communication and also with the timeliness of getting it finished. Reklats E.

Otterson Law office handled the adoptions of my niece and nephew in Alaska. They did a great job addressing all of the concerns and making sure that things were handled well. I am glad to have my niece and nephew in our family thanks to them. Trevor B.
