Facing a Child-Custody battle? Let our Expert attorneys Fight For You!
Child custody is generally the most important issue in a divorce. Children are especially sensitive to the moods of their parents and easily influenced if the parties are constantly battling and talking negatively of the other. Courts want the children to feel wanted by both parents, that their presence or behavior did not contribute to the breakup of the marriage and that their needs, safety and well-being are well provided. California law favors joint custody whenever possible, though this may not be feasible in some cases where one party is not prepared or physically or emotionally incapable. Also, one parent must usually be the primary custodian so that the child can attend one school and be in a stable environment with the co-parent having visitation rights. The lawyers at the Child Custody Attorney Group are sensitive to your concerns and the various issues that often arise in child custody matters and disputes. We can help you draft a parenting plan addressing custody and visitation matters and negotiate with the other parent regarding a mutually acceptable arrangement. If there are disputes, we can help with the mediation process or advocate for you if compromises cannot be achieved and litigation is necessary.
