Professional help for child custody disputes

Traditionally, the law favors mothers when it comes to child custody issues. Pursuant to birth, mothers are given custody from the get-go, and fathers can only obtain parental rights once paternity is established. Yet, even once paternity is established, some work may need to be done to ensure that a man can secure the relationship he desires with his child. When the parents are unmarried, this may mean taking action in court to obtain visitation and, in some cases, filing a petition to establish and/or modify custody.

Custody battles can be quite heated. After all, these disputes often involve two individuals who care deeply about their children and their children's needs. However, sometimes what parents think is best for their children in reality doesn't further those interests. In these instances, it becomes necessary for the other parent to put forth evidence to convince a judge that custody should be modified.

The legal team at the Law Office of Janice Munoz knows what family law judges are looking for when making child custody and visitation determinations. While the standard is to render decisions that further the best interests of the child, there are a number of factors that play into that determination. Our legal team not only knows these factors, but also how to utilize physical and testimonial evidence to satisfactorily address them. Additionally, we know how to anticipate arguments raised by the other side and can thus adequately prepare to rebut them.

Of course, many child custody and visitation issues are settled through negotiations. But even here, you need to ensure that you are protecting your and your child's interests as fully as possible, lest you wind up being taken advantage of by the other parent. So, regardless of whether you plan to negotiate or litigate a child custody issue, or you need to handle a paternity issue, you may want to consult with a competent, experienced legal team, like ours, to determine your best course of action moving forward.
