Child Custody in California
Your relationship with your child is the most important one that you have. When a separation or divorce threatens the time you spend with your child or the decisions you are able to make on their behalf, your best option is to speak with a lawyer. Pursue the outcome that you deserve with the help of Godkin & Brengle LLP.
There are two primary considerations in California child custody cases:
- What is best for the health, safety, and welfare of the child, and
- That the child is benefiting from frequent and meaningful contact with both of their parents.
Custody discussions and outcomes are determined by the best interests of the children and can be influenced by alleged abuse, neglect, or criminal activity, even if these allegations are ultimately false. Judges may take into account certain factors, including the child’s preference, (if the child is old enough) the ability of both parents to co-parent, and the overall stability of the household. When your child’s custody is on the line, you need an advocate that puts your child first. Our San Diego family lawyers will help you come to an agreement that fulfills your child’s needs, or else serve as your strong advocate in court.
Why You Need a Lawyer During Your Child Custody Case
If a custody agreement cannot be mutually agreed to by the parents, a judge, who may not know your family's exact circumstances, will make a determination that will affect your children for years to come. Your family deserves better than this. By working with our firm, you benefit from our reputation and dedication to fighting for what is best for you and your children.
