Efficient, Effective and Dedicated Counsel

Attorneys That Will Represent With Your Child In Mind

In any custody proceeding, the best interests of the child are always the first priority of the court. However, the rights of the parents must not be overlooked. Having a qualified lawyer represent you helps ensure that continuity in your relationships with your children post-divorce.

Custody proceedings are extremely emotional and confrontational matters. At Heitke Counselors Associates LLC, our attorneys are committed to helping you through this process in the most expedient and stress-free manner possible. They will work hard to find a solution that protects your interests as well as your children’s.

We Are Guardian Ad Litem Certified

Sometimes when two parties going through a divorce are in dispute over the future of the child, a Guardian Ad Litem will be appointed to ensure that the child is fairly represented in the courtroom. This requires a special level of certification and approval by the supreme court. Our attorneys possess these credentials.

If necessary, we can enter the courtroom not as a representative of either parent, but as the child’s representative, so we can fight to not only ensure that they are getting what they want and need, but also that everything agreed to is in the child’s best interest.

Our attorneys represent custodial and noncustodial parents in custody proceedings. They understand what is at stake in these matters and are committed to doing everything they can to obtain the maximum amount of parenting time allowable. Whenever possible, they attempt to resolve custody issues without resorting to painful litigation. When necessary, however, our lawyers are fully prepared to advocate for our clients’ rights in court.
