Child Custody

The bond between a parent and child is valuable. It is our goal at The Lorick Office, PLLC to preserve the parent-child bond. This may mean assisting you in gaining full physical custody of your child or it may mean ensuring that you are able to have more time with your child.

In North Carolina, an individual may obtain physical or legal custody of a minor child. Physical custody means the time in which the minor child is actually in your care. In contrast, legal custody refers to a person’s ability to make decisions regarding the minor child’s health, education, and other aspects of the child’s life. In determining child custody, the court takes into consideration the best interest of the child.

The Lorick Law Office, PLLC also assists in modifying existing child custody orders. There must be a change from when you entered into the order to the present. The change must be significant, and it must impact the minor child. People often seek a modification when wanting to regain primary custody of a minor child.

At the Lorick Law Office, PLLC we care about you and your family. We will work diligently and relentlessly to get the best result. We appreciate and recognize the sacred bond between a parent and child. It is our goal to assist in preserving that bond.
