Newport Family Law & Mediation Group has handled many sensitive cases involving children. When determining child custody and visitation, California courts evaluate a child’s best interests. We can help you understand your options and discuss any questions you may have. Our goal is to make sure your voice is heard.
The court is primarily concerned with the children’s health, safety and welfare. It is guided by the principle that children benefit from frequent and continuing contact with both parents. There are two parts of child custody: legal custody and physical custody. Legal custody involves the ability to make important decisions about a child’s education, welfare, safety and health. Physical custody involves where the child lives. Each family is different, and we are here to help you find a solution.
Unfortunately, there are a myriad of other issues that can arise during these cases. For example, is the custodial parent refusing to allow you visitation? There are options. As a grandparent, are you trying to have a relationship with the child? You have rights. Do you think your child support agreement is unfair? We also can help you find solutions to that. Whether it is updating a custody arrangement or establishing paternity, our firm has the experience needed to help you through the most difficult situations.
We are here to assist you in all child custody disputes. To schedule a free 30-minute consultation, call our office in Newport Beach at 949-769-7040 today. You can also email us and someone will be in touch with you as soon as possible.
