Memphis Child Custody and Visitation

Our child custody and visitation lawyers help you secure the parenting time that you want from the court. We can also help you make the right argument for modifying an already existing court order that addresses custody and visitation that it is in the best interest of the child or children for the change you want. Also, if you’re a grandparent and the mother and/or father are trying to deprive you of the time you’ve spent with the child in the past out of some pettiness or family disagreement, Tennessee allows for grandparents to seek visitation rights. We can help.
