Child Custody Solutions That Preserve Parent-Child Relationships
Our goal in all child custody cases is to serve the best interests of children whose parents are separating or divorcing. Our attorneys balance this responsibility with the task of helping a client (mother or father) to obtain the best child custody outcome, and maintain and preserve the crucial parent-child bond.
Common Issues In Custody And Co-Parenting
Our experienced lawyers can educate you about child custody under California family law and address all custody-related issues you may be dealing with:
- Legal custody (decisions regarding the health, education and welfare of your children)
- Physical custody (your child’s primary residence)
- Visitation (parenting time)
- Out-of-state relocation by one parent
- Negotiating the parenting plan and schedule
- Child support obligations
Joint legal custody is the norm, meaning both parents have a say in key decisions. Physical custody may be shared (approximately equal parenting time) or may follow a standard visitation (one night a week and every other weekend with the noncustodial parent). Sole custody is granted only in rare circumstances when one parent is unfit or represents a danger to the child’s well-being.
