Finding The Best Custody Solution For You And Your Children
Parental separations can be difficult for children. When their parents get divorced, children’s lives change dramatically. California courts consider your child’s best interests as the paramount consideration in custody decisions. We take a child centered approach to our advice and advocacy.
We know that you want what is best for your child, and you also want to be able to raise and spend significant time with them. We will work with you to develop parenting plans that keep your children’s needs as paramount and, when necessary, fight to protect those needs in court.
You Have Options When It Comes To Custody Arrangements
Whether you are fighting for sole or joint custody of your child after your divorce, we can help you by negotiating a custody arrangement with your spouse that meets your child’s best interests. We will evaluate your situation and help you determine the best custody arrangement for you and your children, whether shared custody or, if needed, sole custody.
Sole custody is rare but can occur when it is determined that joint custody is not in a child’s best interests. Joint custody arrangements are more common and involve parents split parenting time and decision-making in a significant way, but not necessarily always equally.
There Is No One-Size-Fits-All Solution To High-Income Child Support Cases
In most cases child support is determined through a computer program that determines “guideline” support. Depending on your income, you may qualify as a high-income earner which, when determined, may qualify you to seek a deviation from the “guideline” support amount calculated.
Should it be decided that a deviation from “guideline” support will be pursued, we will work with you and your accountants to prepare a presentation to the Court of what the children’s reasonable needs are when in your care as well as that of your child’s other parent.
