Child Custody Attorneys

Divorce is traumatic and intimidating under any circumstances. If you have children, there is probably no question more important to you than "What about our kids?" The Law Office of Moira E. Tierney will help you navigate the complicated process with the best interests of your children at heart.

Know Your Rights As A Parent
Protect Your Most Important Relationships

After custody is established a parenting plan must be developed. Moira Tierney has over 20 years experience negotiating parenting plans that protect the interests of her client as well as those of her client's children. She is keenly aware of what issues the judges find important and how to approach these matters. Attorney Tierney will create a strategy with the best interests of the children in mind.

At the Law Office of Moira E. Tierney, our long-standing firm in New Bedford, we will clarify legal terms and help you explore all of your options regarding custody and parenting time. In the great majority of cases, continued close relationships with both parents should be a priority. Beyond that, there is often room for negotiation or mediation to reach a settlement that does justice to your role and parental rights.
