Creating A Child Custody Arrangement That Works

Establishing a child custody agreement can be one of the most difficult aspects of a divorce. While every parent wants what is best for the children, emotions can run high and parents’ judgments can become clouded.

At Family Law Group, INC., we help our clients make effective child custody decisions that are in the best interests of their children. Our law firm serves individuals and families in Livermore, Walnut Creek and throughout the Bay Area.

We will work with you and your child’s other parent to negotiate a fair parenting plan that puts your child first.

Child custody arrangements can have a substantial impact on other family law matters such as child support and spousal support. This is why it is imperative to seek experienced legal counsel. Our attorneys are committed to achieving our clients’ goals in an efficient and cost-effective manner.

Custody Mediation/Custody Counseling

Custody mediation, now called custody counseling, is required for contested child custody matters prior to a court hearing in many California counties. Some counties allow an attorney to accompany you to custody counseling. If this is the case in your county, we will be by your side throughout the process. If not, we will thoroughly prepare you for these meetings.

When the proceedings are finished, a mediator will make a written recommendation to the court regarding the child’s custody arrangement, which can be upheld or argued. Our experience in dealing with the various counties and custody counselors can provide you with important feedback and guidance both prior to and after the meetings.
