Child Custody in Pico Rivera
We understand the stressful nature of custody battles. In California, two types of custody exist: sole custody and joint custody. In a sole custody situation, one parent makes all major decisions. In a joint custody situation, both parents are able to make major decisions relating to the care of the child. While custody is often determined during a divorce, with cases including children who were born out of wedlock and children whose custody is sought by a non-parent, lawyers are generally necessary. If there is a dispute, the following considerations are made when deciding which parent gets custody:
- The safety and welfare of the child
- Abuse history by the applying custodian or the person they are challenging
- The relationship and amount of contact between a child or children and a theoretical custodian
- Any kind of substance abuse
We take a personal approach to these cases to make the smartest decisions are made for you and your children. A successful outcome means being reunited with the child or children you love so much. We truly care about bringing your family together, making us a great choice when choosing an attorney for your child custody case. We perform well under pressure and work hard to get the outcome you deserve.
In California, multiple types of adoption exist. In the cases of step parent and domestic partner adopting, lawyers may not be necessary, as a biological parent must only sign over parental rights. However, if a couple is adopting a child independently, internationally or through an agency, there is a legal process. The family wanting to adopt must have their forms reviewed by a court clerk. If applicable, they will need to serve the birth parent with papers for consent to be granted. You will then meet with a neutral investigator who will make determinations about you as adoptive parents and submit his report to the court. A determinative hearing will then be scheduled.
We will make sure you have options when adopting and use our compassion, experience and hard work to resolve the case in your favor.
Child support is such a hot issue of debate, so a divorce attorney is often necessary to get both parties to come to a settlement. A good attorney will determine every detail of your case, accounting for your monthly wages after taxes, the total income after taxes of the parent who should be paying support and the number of children for which support must be received. This takes the stress off of you and makes sure you benefit as much as possible. We will ensure that the case outcome will be beneficial to you and your kids and that you will receive the money you deserve. Our lawyers have years of experience in fighting for child support in and have the compassion and work ethic to get results.
Divorce Law in California
There are several types of divorce – contested, uncontested and high net worth. If uncontested, both parties are in agreement that the marriage is over and will sign papers and determine the distribution of their mutual assets. In a contested or high net worth divorce, court is often necessary to make sure you get a fair case. Our team will work with you to make sure you get the amount of assets, custody, visitation, support and distribution of debt that is fair and reasonable. We will make the best decisions for you but keep you informed. At the end of your case, we will strive to bring you peace and the opportunity to move forward.
