When California parents divorce, it can seem to the children as if the family's life has been turned upside down. It can be difficult for children to adjust to the new living arrangements and family order, especially if the parents are fighting over the legal and physical custody of the children.
When both parents seek custody, it can lead to contentious battles. During these disputes, it can be easy for parents to lose sight of the real goal in child custody determinations - respecting the best interests of the child.
Our firm helps parents work to resolve custody battles so they do not lose any more time with their children than they have to. However, we also help keep the best interests of the children at the forefront of the conversation. In many cases, when parents work for the best interests of the children, they are able to create a custody plan that works best for their family.
Our attorneys can work with a parent to negotiate a settlement of child custody issues. A settlement agreement can create a personalized solution to child custody issues. With our help, parents may be able to avoid long, drawn-out fights that can lead to more stress on the children. Throughout the process, our attorneys try to help parents understand how the decisions they make in the case will affect their lives and the lives of their children in the future.
