Frequently Asked Questions
What Options Do I Have For Child Custody Arrangements in California?

First, it is essential to understand that child custody refers to two forms of responsibility: legal custody and physical custody. Legal custody refers to the ability to make important decisions on the child’s behalf, while physical custody means where the child will live. In California, parents often use shared or joint custody so both parents can be involved in their child’s life. However, one spouse may be awarded sole custody, such as in cases of abandonment or domestic violence. To get the best chance at a favorable outcome in your child custody case, please contact our caring, capable legal team today.

What Should I Look for When Hiring a Family Law Lawyer?

Choosing a family law attorney in Orange County can be difficult, but there are some key characteristics that you should consider when hiring a family lawyer. Your attorney should be caring and listen closely to you and your concerns. They should have many years of experience to prepare them to help with the various needs that may arise during your divorce. If you are divorcing someone with narcissistic tendencies, you should also try to find an attorney who specializes in narcissism to protect you from the legal and emotional manipulation you might face during your divorce.

Do All Divorce Cases End Up in Family Court?

No, in fact, chances are high that your family law case could be resolved in mediation, allowing you and your spouse to divorce without the cost and drama of a courtroom battle. Mediation requires each spouse to cooperate to resolve decisions regarding minor children, the division of marital property, and other important issues. If negotiations fail, you may need a legally binding decision from a family law judge. Your attorney can help you understand your options and pursue solutions through mediation.

Do I Need to Establish Paternity to Get Visitation Rights?

As a father, you have the right to be involved in your children’s lives. However, California law requires paternity to be established for you to be recognized as the child’s father. Establishing paternity can be complicated and should be sought with the help of a skilled attorney. Some benefits to establishing paternity include a closer relationship with your child, greater access to medical information on the child’s history, and the ability to receive benefits on the child’s behalf.

What Happens in a Contested Divorce?

A contested divorce is when two spouses fail to agree on a family law matter that arises during the divorce. Often, there are multiple family law issues that become contentious during a contested divorce. Some decisions that can cause difficulty include guardianship of minor children, spousal support payments, child support payments, and division of the marital estate. With a knowledgeable family lawyer on your side, you have greater chances of reaching agreements with your spouse and avoiding a contested divorce.
