The Best Interest of The Child
In order to resolve your child support issue, parenting time, and custody law issues in court, our attorneys will ensure that the child support order and/or custody order complies with California custody laws.
It is important for parents to realize that determining what is in the best interest of the child or children involved involves a number of factors. Visitation rights and financial obligations, such as child support payments, are among these factors. The judge presiding over your case is ultimately responsible for issuing a court order based on what they believe to be in the best interests of the child.
In cases of family law issues in Los Angeles, a custody order will be issued determining which parent will have sole physical custody of the children, while the other parent will be granted visitation rights. When issuing a temporary or permanent custody order, the judge will typically consider all pertinent factors to ensure that the children’s needs are met.
Even if one parent is awarded sole physical custody of the child or children involved in a case, visitation must be ordered so that each parent can spend time with his or her child or children. Contact us now to discuss your current legal issues and we’ll let you know how we can assist you.
