CUSTODY & SUPPORT
Having to fight for the right to see your child, or the right to protect your child can be daunting. Parents can rely on the experience of our Attorneys in obtaining child custody and support judgments. We fight hard to make the system work for our clients. We understand that it is often in the best interests of the child for the parents to come to an amicable agreement regarding custody or visitation, but we also understand that parenting situations are not always black and white. We will guide you through this tough process with open communication, creative and strategic planning and with the best interest of your child at the center of it all. Call us today for a free 30 minute consultation.
GUARDIANSHIP & ADOPTION
In some circumstances, it is necessary for a family to use legal remedies that dictate who is responsible for caring for a child. Adoptions and guardianships are each employed differently to resolve these issues.
-Adoption is ideal for situations where a biological parent's rights can and should be permanently terminated, and the legal relationship for the adoptive parent(s) is the same as it would be for a birth family. An adopted child is able to inherit benefits from his or her adoptive parents in the same way he or she would from biological parents. This kind of relationship is not subject to supervision from the California court system.
-A guardianship is used in situations where a child's biological parents retain parental rights and have contact with the child. Guardianships allow another individual (i.e., a grandparent, extended family member or someone else) the ability to legally care for a child when his or her biological parents are not able to. Guardianships are supervised by the court and can be terminated if and when a child's biological parents can suitably care for the child again.
