A child custody attorney in Fontana CA can help you reach the agreements that are best for your kids.
Unfortunately, sometimes when parents are embroiled in a divorce or other dispute with a co-parent, they forget to look out for the best interests of their kids and start acting selfishly, denying kids contact with the co-parent or other relatives out of spite. With help from a child custody attorney in Fontana CA, you can seek fair and appropriate access to the kids in your life whether you are a:
- Divorced parent
- Unwed parent
How to Secure a Custody & Visitation Order
If you get along with your co-parent and you can both agree on what is best for your kids, you can make your own custody and visitation agreements. However, to turn these agreements into court orders, which allows for violations to be enforced by the police or the court, you need to submit the agreement to a judge for approval. A child custody attorney in Fontana CA can help you do this.
Parents who cannot decide on how to split custody and visitation, as well as grandparents whose rights are being denied, may need to go through mediation with Family Court Services or have a judge settle the issue for them. Before entering mediations or going before a judge, you will definitely want to get advice about your legal rights and responsibilities from a child custody attorney in Fontana CA.
Keeping Agreements Fair & Relevant
As kids grow and parents’ situations change, child custody and visitation arrangements may become outdated. To change your agreements, you will need to consult a child custody attorney in Fontana CA. Your attorney can advise you of the strength of your argument for a change and file the necessary documentation. Some possible scenarios include:
- Terminating physical custody for a parent that has developed a drug problem
- Extending the agreement beyond a child’s 18th birthday to provide for a special needs child
- Including a grandparent or other relative in the visitation schedule
Remember, the guiding principle in any modification will always be to provide the arrangement that is in the best interests of the child.
