At The Law Offices of Burch, Coulston & Shepard, LLP, family law is the exclusive focus of our experienced attorneys and staff. Questions about parental rights arise literally every day in divorce cases, as well as after and outside of divorce. Our in-depth knowledge of California statutes and case law enables us to provide clear, dependable guidance regardless of the complexity of the situation.
Perhaps the most important concept to grasp when any dispute involving children arises is that the court prioritizes the best interests of the child. All efforts to obtain a certain custody arrangement in divorce, modify custody or visitation or stop a parental relocation, for example, must be based on that principle rather than the mother's, father's or other parties' judgments or desires.
People seeking to protect their children's well-being and assert their own parental rights turn to us for education, support and insight. Our Orange County family law attorneys support and work within laws that treat mothers' rights and fathers' rights as equally important, although we are also realistic attorneys who know that perspectives and patterns differ between various courts and officials.
We will do all we can to help you make sound decisions and take the most effective legal action.
Whether you need protection of your parental rights in a complex high net worth divorce or need to take legal action to ensure continued involvement with a child, we encourage you to call us at (949) 565-4158 and schedule a consultation.
