Keeping Families Together With Child Custody And Visitation

A divorce can change how parents and children live with each other and, by extension, how the children will grow up. Thankfully, as a parent facing divorce, you can influence the outcome of this portion of your divorce with the help of a skilled and committed California family law attorney.

When you are dealing with any kind of child custody in California, turn to the Law Offices of Tecla M. Lunak, APC, for a child custody lawyer you can depend on. We take the time to develop personalized strategies for each of our clients to help ensure the custody arrangement the court determines is in the best interests of our clients and their children.

How Is Child Custody Determined In California?

When seeking child custody in California, it is important to understand how a court reaches a decision on the arrangement. A judge in California will review certain factors before determining the custody arrangement, including:

  • The age of the children
  • The medical needs of the parents and children
  • The emotional connection each parent has with their children
  • The connection the children have with their home, community and school

Our goal as your legal representation in these matters is to gather all the necessary evidence to prove the reality of these and any other factors a judge may look at to ensure the results of your child custody or visitation needs reflect your best interests. We are also here to help you in move-away situations as well.

What Is Considered A Move-Away In California?

In some family law cases, after a divorce, a parent needs to relocate to a new home. This relocation can impact the viability of a custody agreement and call for a change in terms. If a relocation does not interfere with a court order and the moving parent has given proper notice, no legal action is needed.

In cases where the relocation is a long distance away and impacts a court order, the parent will need to ask a court for permission to proceed with the relocation. Whether you are seeking a relocation or trying to prevent one, our child custody lawyer can help you through the process.
