How to Approach Custody and Visitation Plans
In Riverside, Corona, Norco, and surrounding areas, the courts have a specific way of approaching child custody and visitation arrangements. They want as much co-parenting as possible. The courts would prefer to see time divided evenly between both parents.
Sometimes things just don’t work out that way. At the Law Offices, we will stand by your side to pursue child custody and visitation arrangements that make sense for you and your family. Contact us today to schedule a free initial consultation. Our Corona child custody lawyers are ready to help you and your family.
Considering All the Variables
A lot of factors need to be considered when making decisions about child custody and visitation plans (also known as “parenting plans”). One of the most important is the number of hours that you’re actually available to spend with your children.
For example, on the surface, having custody for four days may seem better than having custody for two days. However, if those four days are during the week when you’re away at work, they may not be as valuable as two weekend days that you can share with your children.
You want to be able to spend quality parenting time. Our Corona family law attorneys have the experience to consider all of the variables and help you make the decisions about your parenting plan that will be most valuable to you in the long run — and limit the need for you to come back to court for modifications to these orders later. In the event of a relocation or move-away, we can assist in seeking or contesting a modification that reflects this.
Child Custody Impacts Other Aspects of Divorce
In addition to considering all of the variables when deciding on child custody and visitation arrangements, we will also work with you to ensure that you understand how the arrangements can impact other areas of your divorce or domestic partnership dissolution.
Your custody plans can also impact your child support payments. In the settlement negotiations process, child support payments can tie into the property division aspect of your case. It is important to remember that all of these components are intertwined. We will not lose sight of the big picture.
We Keep Fees Reasonable
Our lawyers believe that effective legal representation can come at reasonable fees. We keep our fees reasonable, partly because we do not add phone calls between you and us to your bill. From your initial consultation on, all calls are free.
