San Bernardino County & Riverside County's Experienced Child Custody Attorney
If you are going through a divorce or are in the midst of a paternity dispute, the primary custody of the children and the visitation rights are going to be key concerns. The Law Office of Aletha J. Smith, PC, represents your best interests as a child custody attorney.
In California, joint physical and legal custody is favored if the parents are willing to work out a plan together. However, if the parents are not able to come to an agreement, then the court will have the final say and make a child custody and visitation order that places the child's best interest first. Our experienced child custody attorney will guide you through the many factors that the court will consider in a custody and visitation and relocation of the child matter. Factors include the safety of the children—as determined by the domestic violence or substance abuse histories of the parents—first and foremost, the age of the children and their subsequent ability to have informed preferences, which parent may be more likely to encourage visits with the other parent, and the current nature and amount of contact each parent has with the children. Our firm creates a solid, persuasive case for what custody arrangement will best serve your children.
We encourage all concerned parents to contact the Law Office of Aletha J. Smith, PC, for assistance with child custody and visitation concerns. For more information, get in touch with us today and schedule your free 30-minute consultation.
