Determining custody after a divorce is a highly important factor that directly impacts your child's life. Having an experienced lawyer on your side can make the legal process easier and will keep your best interests in the foreground at all times. At our firm, we recognize the tensions that are often associated with custody issues and pledge to take an assertive and direct approach to resolving your legal issue.
The Law Offices of Burch, Coulston & Shepard, LLP, is located in Newport Beach and represents clients throughout Orange County and the surrounding California areas. We focus exclusively on family law and are led by a team of experienced attorneys. Our partners are both Certified Family Law Specialists and are both graduates of the American Bar Association (ABA) Family Law Trial Advocacy Institute.
In addition to custody and visitation matters, we assist our clients with related matters such as calculating child support, developing a parenting plan and more.
While the courts will examine many different factors when determining custody arrangements, joint custody is typically favored if it is in the best interests of the child. This means that most major decisions will be made by both parents. If joint custody is not in the best child's interests, the courts may decide between legal and physical custody.
Our Newport Beach family law attorneys have successfully represented clients across the whole spectrum of child custody and visitation issues. We recognize that these issues can be a source of contention both during and after divorce proceedings. Recognizing the strains these legal issues can present, you can be certain that we will work to resolve matters efficiently and reach a fair and reasonable custody arrangement.
