Child custody and visitation decisions are some of the most emotionally demanding issues in a divorce. At Lonich Patton Ehrlich Policastri, we are committed to helping our clients make child custody and visitation decisions that are in the best interest of their children.

California Child Custody Lawyers

Child custody is not as simple as one parent getting the kids while the other does not. Child custody can take many forms. The courts typically favor joint legal custody, giving parents equal rights to make decisions concerning education, medical treatment and religion. Physical custody can take many forms, including equal ("50/50") physical custody or sole physical custody with visitation rights to the noncustodial parent.

Our attorneys have extensive experience in handling complex child custody matters. We recognize that child custody decisions have a cascading effect on many of the other issues involved in a divorce, including child support, spousal support and property division. We work closely with our clients before, during and after their divorce to protect the interests of their children.

Complex Child Custody and Visitation Matters

Many factors complicate child custody and visitation decisions. Cases involving allegations of drug and alcohol abuse, child abuse, molestation or domestic violence are particularly difficult. This is also true of cases involving a parental move away, which can be especially complex when one or both parents are foreign nationals or have dual citizenship.

Our attorneys routinely represent men and women dealing with complex child custody disputes. We vigorously seek orders intended to protect children from parental abuse and addiction, including parental drug and alcohol testing, parenting and anger management classes, supervised visitation and/or sole custody. Our primary objective in child custody cases is to help our clients achieve a result that is in the best interest of their child.
