Third-Party Custody

Handling Third-Party Custody Cases

In many child custody cases, the biological parents do more harm than good in raising their children. Their parenting skills go against the best interests of their children. Third-party custody matters, while rife with emotion, require immediate action to protect children.

At Hodgson Law Office, I move quickly to provide protection from children victimized by abuse or dealing with a drug-addicted parent. That protection often comes in the form of a third-party custody arrangement involving grandparents or other close family members.

I am proactive in securing a grandparent custody arrangement and providing stability to children.

Handling Third-Party Custody Cases

Focused On The Children's Best Interests

Dropping off the kids with grandma and grandpa does not make a formal third-party custody arrangement. Even parents who acknowledge their shortcomings and personal issues still have the right to return and take their children back home. You need a formal third-party custody arrangement filed in court.

Following the legal process has benefits in addition to securing the safety of the children in your life. A third-party custody order also requires the biological parents to pay grandparents child support. The parents may absolve themselves of raising the children, but financial obligations still exist.

I hired Mark Hodgson for a divorce in Spokane. He was open, friendly, and gave me great advice and counsel. Mark was honest with me about my case and worked hard to resolve all of my issues quickly. He responded to my phone calls and questions every time. He was WONDERFUL in my hearing and got me alimony, child support, and the parenting plan that my children needed. I had two other lawyers before Mark and he is far superior to my previous counsel. He fought hard for me and he knew the law. I would and will recommend him to everyone that i know.

These situations are never easy. Deciding to get a lawyer then choosing one was a very hard decision. I spoke to a few people that have been thru divorce and Mark’s name came up more than once. I went and met with him, his business partners and Casey his assistant. They were all friendly, professional and most importantly for me nonjudgmental. He is very educated on divorce with children and keeps in mind what is best for the kids! He answered my questions and didn’t make me feel belittled as other lawyers did. Thank you Mark Hodgson and team you are all very appreciated!

Called Mark Wednesday the day before Thanksgiving. He got us in that Friday the day after Thanksgiving. We decided to hire him and he made the time to start the process of paperwork that Sunday. It was great he did this so my wife and I didn’t have to miss work and our case was a time sensitive issue. The few times I’ve had to emailed him he seem to get right back to us with answers.
