Helping Parents Protect Their Parent-Child Bond

If you are a parent, your children are important to you. They may be the most important part of your of life. Their importance does not diminish if your relationship with their other parent changes.

At Terrazas Henkel, P.C., in Missoula, Montana, our lawyers help parents protect their parental rights and the rights of their children in light of divorce, separation, and other circumstances.

Whether you are a mother or a father of a child in Montana, we can help you obtain fair and reasonable parenting time (child custody), parental contact (visitation) and child support arrangements.

We also help our clients obtain modified orders for custody, visitation, and support as their circumstances change, or to enforce prior orders when a parent fails to comply with the terms of the parenting plan or child support directive.

We also assist in related matters of establishing paternity and legitimation, as well as pursuing custody and/or visitation rights for grandparents.

Negotiation When Possible; Litigation When Needed

Our primary tool is negotiation, but we are also able to help clients by representing them in mediation, or if necessary, litigation in court. We find the healthiest and most enduring results come when both parents can agree on terms that serve their children; however, we are tenacious litigators when a court battle is unavoidable or negotiation is unproductive.

Our aim is to always provide our clients — and their children —with the best outcomes possible for their situations.
