Child Custody Attorney in Santa Ana CA

Protect your relationship with your kids by hiring a child custody attorney in Santa Ana CA

Under California law, married parents automatically receive equal rights to physical and legal custody of their children. However, when parents are not married or when they get divorced, these rights need to be defined with custody and visitation agreements. For best results, you should get a child custody attorney in Santa Ana CA to assist you with this process.

Help for Uncontested Child Custody Cases

If you and your child’s other parent get along, you can work out the details of your own custody and visitation arrangements. However, it is still wise to involve a child custody attorney in Santa Ana CA. We can provide advice to help make sure you understand your rights and do not unwittingly accept any unfair provisions in your agreements. Plus, we can assist with the process of having your agreements reviewed and approved by a judge, which will make them legally binding and help protect you in the event of any future disagreements with your co-parent.

We Can Help Keep your Custody Agreements Fair & Relevant

Your custody and visitation agreements are not set in stone. This is quite fortunate since agreements can start out fair only to become inappropriate as family circumstances change over the years. For example, maybe a military parent is being deployed overseas and the other parent needs to be awarded sole custody during that time. Or, maybe a parent has developed a drug problem and needs to have their visitation rights restricted. For the best chance of securing the modifications you and your child need, you should definitely let a child custody attorney in Santa Ana CA prepare your modification petition and submit it to the family court for you.
