Child Custody

Child-Focused representation

If you have children, you want a child-focused lawyer to help put together a custody and visitation agreement that puts your children’s needs first.



Fiction:    “Moms always get custody of the kids”.

FACT:    There is no such statute or case law.  The Court’s primary concern in a custody dispute is the best interests of the minor child.  Further, as stated in Family Code §3020: “it is the public policy of this state to ensure that children have frequent and continuing contact with both parents after the parents have separated or dissolved their marriage, or ended their relationship…except when the contact would not be in the best interests of the child”.

Psychological Effect of Child Custody Disputes

Child custody disagreements are often emotionally charged and can lead to psychologically destructive behavior by parents. We are well versed in the articles regarding child development and parental alienation. Our proven experience in custody litigation will allow you to minimize and counteract such behavior.

We will work with you to establish and implement custody and visitation arrangements that are in the best interests of your children, while protecting your rights as parents. As we craft your custody and visitation plan, we will factor in the medical, educational, religious and other special needs of the children.
