Divorce is emotionally difficult because it ends a relationship that was once full of happiness and joy.
When children are involved, emotions and disagreements become even more difficult to deal with in a way that protects your children and your access to them.
Child custody cases are rarely simple – even if both spouses agree on most everything because of the myriad of unforeseen complications that can arise such as spouses living in different states or countries, a spouse in the military or on deployment, or even the involvement of family members such as grand parents of the children.
Changing from a married to a single parent situation also introduces additional financial issues and time limitations that didn’t exist prior to the divorce that can change the attitude and compliance of ex-spouses after a period of time causing increased pressure and complications.
Having already gone through the divorce and having their lives uprooted and disrupted, children involved in child custody cases deserve the best outcome and protection you can provide for them.
That’s why we are here – to help you protect your children and your access to them even in the most difficult of child custody cases.
We have vast experience in family law and child custody cases, so we can help you avoid costly mistakes and the future complications that often go unforeseen.
Give us a call and let us show you the best course of action to take in your particular situation. The first meeting is always Free.
WHAT OUR CLIENTS ARE SAYING...
A few comments from some of our happy clients. We work hard to give our clients the best possible outcome in every single case – Our reputation depends on it.
"Had a pretty simple child custody case, but still needed the help of an attorney and William was great. Very friendly, and surprisingly enough quick to respond!! Answered all my questions and then some! I highly recommend! "
"My relationship with Will Fontenot was very unusual because I live in another state and needed an attorney in whom I could place complete faith and trust to represent my family. Mr. Fontenot's performance was exemplary exceeding my expectations at every turn. Not only did Will provide a careful well researched defense, but kept me informed at every step, while maintaining a level of professional decorum and courtesy that is hard to find in any business environment. I would recommend Mr. Fontenot to anyone, without reservation. I hope I never need an attorney again, but if I do, I know who I want on my team."
"In a child custody matter, William took on the case with short notice, provided excellent assistance, and was respectful and professional both in and out of the court room. A quality I appreciate is how William presented himself first as a caring individual, then as an attorney. With the high conflict issues I had, this was very helpful in calming my nerves. Having experienced family law attorneys that were less than friendly, I value William's straight forward approach, his know-how in a confusing process, and overall, him calling me out when I was letting heightened emotions cloud my judgment. William's focus on what is fair, and right is a quality I've found difficult to find in other family law attorneys. I recommend William and his firm with the highest of regards."
"Mr. Fontenot is representing me in finalizing my divorce. His great timing has made all the difference in the world to me. The first time I walked into his office, I thought I was ready to “get it over with”. I was willing to give up anything just to be out of the marriage. I see now that I wasn't even close to being ready. I had a long way to go. I was only seeing what I wanted to see. Through this process, I have learned patience and have found out a lot about myself. I believe this growth had made me become a better person and a much better mother. Mr. Fontenot always used his good judgment to only give me what I could handle, when I could handle it. Even though I knew he was always just a phone call away, I trusted him to look out for me and my kids as he saw fit. It has been a very long, very difficult process, but I think we are finally nearing the end. I know that Mr. Fontenot and I have frustrated each other tremendously several times, but I realize now that he has been looking out for us the whole time. I see now that all of the pitfalls we have had were really stepping stones. I believe those pitfalls were all necessary and part of the healing process. Now I try to look at them as a series of tiny miracles that add up to finally being able to let go and move on. Thank you, Will."
"I have nothing but the best to say about Will and his team. Will is a guy that I trust and can depend on to not only call me back but also stay true to his word and follow through. I would highly recommend Will and the legal services he provides."
"When my family was in need of help, Will came thru with flying colors. Our situation could have been dire, but with this attorneys expertise and knowledge things turned out to be not so dire. Thanks so very much! If ever in need again we will be calling on Mr. Fontenot."
"Will took my case, a case that lesser attorneys told me was UN-winnable. He looked at my case with unrivaled legal prowess and his fees were beyond reasonable. In the end, Will explored every avenue of legal defense and saved my reputation, my freedom and my livelihood. If I ever need an attorney in the future, Will Fontenot would be my first and last choice! Thanx Will!"
"Will took over a case that is now in the Utah Supreme Court. The case has had four other attorneys offices involved over the past decade with varying levels of success. His professional attitude and caring disposition were the deciding factors in our hiring him. His ability to understand the intricate legal issues gave us comfort. His very impressive handling of Oral Arguments before the Utah Supreme Court highlighted his intelligence as well as his abilities. You would be hard pressed to tell that it was his first time before the Supreme Court. He was well prepared and confident, but very composed. I would feel very comfortable recommending Will to anyone who finds themselves in need of an Honorable Attorney! His supporting office personnel make for a winning Team."
