Child Custody & Visitation
Issues relating to child custody and visitation 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.
Our Corona Child Visitation Rights Lawyers Understand That Child Custody Is About The Best Interests Of The Child
The Riverside and Temecula child custody attorneys at Cullen & Murphy 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 our client’s position while maintaining the best interest of their child.

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 in order to represent their own interests and those of their children effectively.
In highly litigated custody cases when the child is old enough to have his or her wishes in the matter taken into account, we will help make sure the child is heard. We usually 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.
Guidance Throughout The Child Custody Determination Process
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 your stress.
