Is an uncommon work schedule hindering your parenting time? Most common parenting schedules you find online assume both parents work a classic Monday through Friday, 9-5 schedule, or at the very least a seven day work schedule. If you are a paramedic, firefighter or the like, however, you may work on a 9, 18 or 21 day rotating cycle.
A non-traditional schedule does not designate a need to sacrifice quality time with your children because of a rigid, non-customized parenting schedule. The experienced family law attorneys at the Cossitt Law Firm can help you navigate this process and provide creative solutions that are tailored to you and your family’s needs. We can help you get ahead of vacation and holiday schedules in the process to avoid future headaches as the busy holiday season approaches.

"I am very appreciative of Toms services. English is a second language to me, and this process seemed difficult because of that barrier. He was very patient and thorough making sure I understood everything before he proceeded. I will recommend him to everyone! He truly cares about you, as does his wonderful, helpful team"
Review from AVVO
"I had a very challenging case, one that could have had indefinite financial consequences. Tom Cossitt evaluated my case and identified several strategies for moving forward. I chose one and Tom developed and implemented that strategy with speed and with the utmost in professionalism. The documents he drafted on my behalf, based on extensive research and case law / precedent were thorough and comprehensive. When the Court ruled, it used the arguments as developed by Tom Cossitt verbatim in its decision, and the case was decided in my favor. Needless to say, I was pleased beyond words. Based on my experience and the outcome of my case, I would highly recommend Tom Cossitt to anyone requiring the services of a family law attorney."
Review from Google
"I met with as many as 10 different attorneys before coming across Thomas. After our initial consultation, I was very pleased with his knowledge and realistic expectations. During the really tough time, Thomas kept me calm and helped tremendously to get custody of my daughter. He kept me informed on what was going on and would ask for my input; if it was something that was unrealistic or could be done a different way, Thomas would tell me right away. During the hearings, he was amazing. He kept a professional attitude and was great at cross examinations. He took in all of the facts and evidence, and was able to present them efficiently and effectively. Ultimately helping me gain custody of my child."
