When you are going through a divorce or making a needed change in your established custody agreement, your children’s best interests must be at the forefront of every decision. Thompson Law Office specializes in family law, serving our clients with expertise and dedication.
Biological parents have the right to seek visitation or custody of their child or children. In order to proceed with a case, paternity must be established. This is especially important in cases where the parents are not married or were not married at the time of birth. Once paternity is established, a father can begin to pursue custody or visitation.
Parenting agreements can be put in place through mediation or court proceedings. This will include a litany of details related to custody, including establishing visitation periods and which parent will be responsible for decision-making in terms of education and health care.
Thompson Law Office tries to handle all child custody and support cases through mediation. An adversarial approach can create additional expense and problems for both sides. Even contested hearings generally result in both parents having access to the children, unless there is verifiable evidence of abuse or drug problems.
Child visitation orders are also modified in court if arrangements need to be changed. When you work with Thompson Law Office, Sherry A. Thompson will handle your case. She has more than 30 years of experience as a California Certified Family Law Specialist and will apply her expertise to your specific situation. Contact us today to schedule a consultation.
