What Custody Arrangement Is Best For Your Family?

As a parent, you are likely concerned about maintaining meaningful involvement in your children's lives following a custody dispute. And rightfully so because children are generally better off when they spend roughly equal time with both parents . Your children's well-being as well as your parental rights are of paramount concern.

I represent parents in custody disputes that arise in the context of divorce as well as those outside the divorce process — for example, those coupled with paternity cases. Additionally, I assist clients seeking to modify existing visitation arrangements, whether they involve sole custody or joint custody.

When you choose me as your legal adviser, I will afford your case the same high level of importance that you do. You can rest assured with the knowledge that I will work hard to protect your relationship with your children.

What You Can Expect

In California, before reaching the courtroom, parents must go through a form of mediation to try to resolve custody and visitation disputes. The mediator will then make a recommendation to the court.

When you meet with me, I will prepare you for mediation and let you know what to expect. I will readily address any and all concerns you may have so you can feel comfortable throughout the process.

When the most important part of your life — your relationship with your children — is at stake, you can be certain I will do everything in my power to protect that relationship.
