Child Custody & Visitation

At the law office of Michael J. Thompson, Attorney at Law, we understand the importance of your relationships with your children.

If you are involved in a divorce or custody dispute near Fort Campbell or elsewhere in Kentucky or Tennessee, we can help.
Our custody and visitation lawyer handles cases involving:
Child custody — Custody comes in two kinds, legal and physical. In most cases, one parent will have primary physical custody, meaning that the child will live primarily with him or her. The amount of child support the other parent pays will be affected by the custody arrangements.
Visitation — Creating visitation schedules can be particularly challenging for military spouses. If a couple from Fort Campbell gets divorced and they each intend to move back to their home states, the visitation agreement must take into account the distance, travel expenses and other issues.
Modifications — Child custody and visitation agreements can be modified as the child's or parents' needs change. Parental relocation is one common example of a situation warranting a modification of original court orders.
