Legal Expertise: Child Custody cases require a deep understanding of California family law. We have extensive expertise in child custody matters. We will provide you with comprehensive legal advice, guiding you through the questions of sole versus joint custody, visitation rights, and modifications to existing custody arrangements.

Best Interests of the Child: Our paramount concern is the well-being of your children. We will work closely with you to understand the dynamics of your family and craft a custody arrangement that is in the best interests of your children. Factors such as stability, emotional well-being, and the child’s relationship with each parent are considered in developing a custody plan that fosters a supportive and nurturing environment.

We recommend considering mediation or other alternative dispute resolution methods. Through skilled negotiations, we work to reach amicable agreements that minimize conflict and provide for a harmonious transition for your children. However, if litigation becomes necessary, our attorneys are prepared to advocate for your parental rights in the courtroom.

After being filed with divorce papers, I called Kathleen and left her a message regarding my circumstance. She promptly returned my call and was extremely helpful and concerned regarding my case. It was a breath of fresh air that someone finally cared and understood. I ended up meeting with her later that day and when I walked in still extremely emotional she looked at me and I felt like she understood. I explained my situation and told her that I was most concerned for my two children. She also understood that from a personal level also. Kate always tried to make sure that I understood that it really was the communication between my ex and I that would most likely solve this. She also completely understood and reminded me that all this anger from him was feelings of hurt. Kate was there for me emotionally and answered all my questions regarding the case at anytime. She was even willing to talk to me on weekends and from home. Kate is professional, caring, and I will always be thankful to her for helping me in one of the worst times is my life.
