Understanding Child Custody Laws in Californiacustody dispute

Child custody is one of the most challenging family law practice areas. If you are a parent going through a divorce, separating from the other parent, or looking to establish a legal custody arrangement with the other parent, our attorneys are known for getting the results you desire.

Custody Matters We Can Assist In


  • A key issue of divorcing couples with minor children is custody. If the parties cannot agree on terms, we can get your matter in front of a judge.


  • Sometimes a custody agreement that worked at the time of case conclusion may not work later down the road. We can help you get your modification case before a judge, if the parties cannot agree on the arrangement.


  • Even though a separating couple is still legally married, many times couples must reach agreements on child custody and visitation.


  • If the parents of a child are not married at the time of birth, they must legally establish paternity for the father to gain parental rights.

Parents’ Rights

  • Parents have certain legal rights to their children. These include the ability to make important decisions on their behalf and spending time with them.

Grandparents’ Rights

  • There are a few circumstances in which a grandparent may need to exercise their legal right to a grandchild. We will help you in this endeavor and aggressively advocate for your rights.


  • Sometimes parents may refuse to honor a child custody arrangement, even when it is legally required. We will help you get the other parent to participate with the agreement.


  • If you must move a great distance from the other parent, you may need to modify a custody agreement to reflect this move. This can be a difficult task, but our attorneys have garnered many victories.
