Are you concerned about protecting your interests as a parent in a divorce? Can you improve your position in a custody and visitation battle and achieve your goal to spend as much time with your children as possible?
One of the most important (and often contentious) issues in a San Diego divorce is child custody and visitation. We are often asked how the Court will decide child custody and visitation questions, and our first question in return is simply: “What’s your biggest worry? What concerns you the most?”
The fact of the matter is there are too many factors which go into the Judge’s evaluation of each family from the perspective of child custody and visitation. Each parent has different strengths and, yes, weaknesses from the law’s perspective. No, the Court doesn’t just presume a 50/50 split of custody and visitation and go from there. Yes, the parties have a lot of options as they negotiate or mediate a comprehensive Parenting Plan which addresses all aspects of child custody and visitation. Yes, we can help our clients to improve your position in a custody and visitation battle.
If you want to co-parent or share a substantial amount of parenting time with your soon-to-be former spouse one of the best things you can start with is to take a genuine look at your child(ren)’s day. How much are you involved in every moment of their life from the time they wake up to the time they fall asleep? How big of a roll do you play in every aspect of their school, transportation, social, extra-curricular, religious and healthcare activities?
Our Certified Family Law Specialists have developed substantial questions to help identify your strengths and weaknesses as a potential co-parent. We can help you to modify choices to improve your strength as a parent from 2 important points of view: the best interests of your child and how you can be more prepared and effective as a potential co-parent.
This is why it is so important to pre-plan a divorce. Allow time for important planning and preparations. Strategy. Organization. The more time you have to improve your position in a custody and visitation battle the more likely you are to achieve your goals. We are here to support you in those efforts and accomplish those objectives.
