Child Custody & Visitation
Child custody and visitation issues are among the most contentious and emotionally charged concerns in divorce and paternity cases. Child custody arrangements also have financial consequences because they affect child support determinations.
Your Child’s Best Interests
The Riverside and Temecula child custody attorneys at Cullen Family Law Group and their legal staff have extensive experience helping clients resolve custody disputes. We work with our clients to achieve child custody and visitation orders that reflect their position while maintaining their child’s best interest. There are several options for child custody arrangements, including:
- Sole legal and physical custody of the child
- Joint legal custody
- Joint legal custody with shared parenting time
Our law firm educates clients about the rights and options available under California custody laws. Our experienced child custody lawyers will also assist with complex custody disputes involving parental relocation requests.
Family Law Mediation
In California, family law mediation is mandatory when there is a dispute over child custody or visitation determinations. The goal of mediation is to protect children from bitter litigation. Our role is to prepare our clients for mediation, so they can effectively represent their interests and the interests of their children.
Child Involvement in California Custody Cases
In highly litigated custody cases, when the child is old enough to have their wishes considered, we will help ensure the child is heard. Our goal is to use the assistance of a mediator who can voice the child’s wishes to the Court. We try to minimize disruption and stress to the children involved.
An Expert May Be Necessary To Assist In Determining Custody Orders
In determining legal custody and physical custody, courts may require an expert to evaluate the best interests of a child. During an evaluation, the Court’s expert will investigate your family’s circumstances to see what type of custody arrangement would suit your family. We will guide you through the investigation and expert interview process to reduce stress.
