Reaching agreement on custody and visitation can be especially challenging in a divorce involving a child with special needs. In addition to issues common to other custody cases, parents sometimes disagree adamantly about who is most capable of caring for a child with autism, a brain injury, chronic illness, or any other disability or serious condition.
At The Law Offices of Burch, Coulston & Shepard, LLP, in Orange County, you can work closely with an attorney who will be sensitive to your unique family situation and empathize with your goals for your special needs child. Applying decades of experience handling complex custody disputes and child support concerns, our legal team will advocate for you every step of the way.
We have in-depth familiarity with various child disabilities, the demands mothers and fathers of special needs children face, and how California courts assess and decide disputed custody matters.
Recognizing that joint custody providing for near-equal time with each parent may not be practical in your case, we will negotiate or aggressively litigate to help you maintain the levels of control and involvement you believe are best for your special needs child or children.
We provide informed, realistic counsel based on decades of experience in Southern California family courts.
