What You Need to Know
Child custody and visitation issues are one of the most daunting topics that must be addressed in a divorce or in situations involving unmarried parents. The prospect of dividing the time you spend with your children is emotional on its own. It is further complicated due to the ways that custody arrangements can impact child support and the financial situations of both parents. Due to the complex nature of custody cases, you need an attorney who can help you protect your rights and the well-being of your children.
At The Service Law Offices, we assist clients in resolving difficult custody matters as efficiently and equitably as possible. We serve clients in the Kansas City Metro area and throughout surrounding Missouri counties. Our team is familiar with all of the potential pitfalls that can impact custody and visitation cases and has extensive experience protecting the interests of mothers and fathers in custody cases.
When you come to our office for a free consultation, we will provide you with all of the information and advice you need to make sound decisions about your situation. This includes a discussion of information such as:
Courts are only concerned with what is fair and in the best interests of the children. They seek to ensure the children’s long-term well-being instead of catering to the feelings of parents who may not be thinking clearly due to the emotionally charged nature of custody cases.
In the past, mothers had more rights than fathers and were almost automatically granted custody of the children. Now, both parents have equal rights to custody.
Increased custody obligations can reduce child support obligations. For example, someone who only has custody of the children 25 percent of the time will typically pay more child support than someone who has custody 50 percent of the time.

Because It's Our Client's That Matter Most
Yale was great... affordable, accessible, responsive and knowledgeable. He spent time with me one-on-one and achieved a positive outcome for my family and me.
With his many years of experience, Mr. Lewis was very knowledgeable in response to my case. While he acted as my council, he was prompt in his responses and clear about what had to be done, saving me time and money..
If you need an attorney to tell you the truth and get the job done, Mr. Lewis is definitely the right attorney. I have been a Paralegal in the legal field for more than 5 years and have met many attorneys and Mr. Lewis is by far one of the most well-versed attorneys in his field that I have ever met.
Debunking Some Real Estate Myths
I have a real estate broker so I don't need a lawyer.
A real estate broker is paid to close deals, not to look out for your interests. They are not qualified to offer legal advice and may not be too concerned about the finer details of your contract. Legal advice from an experienced real estate attorney protects your interests and helps avoid significant issues down the road.
Real estate attorneys are too expensive.
The pricing is determined by the firm you choose, but there are many quality real estate attorneys that perform basic real estate services like title searches, contract reviews, and closings for very reasonable fees. In any case, it is much more affordable then ending up in costly litigation due to issues that were easily avoidable.
Lawyers just complicate the process.
A good real estate attorney should actually make your transaction go more smoothly. We reduce the chances of last-second surprises that delay or disrupt your transaction by doing our due-diligence up front.
