San Jose Child Custody Attorney
No other area of family law can be more contentious than child custody. While California law always decides these disputes in favor of “the best interests of the child”, the courts have wide latitude in determining just what those interests are. A skilled child custody attorney can make a difference in the outcome of these disputes.
At Martha J. Olson & Associates, we represent clients in Silicon Valley and throughout Santa Clara County in child custody cases and in related concerns such as:
- Child support / Dissomaster calculations
- Visitation rights, parenting plans, and parenting time issues
- Joint legal custody and physical custody agreements
- Grandparents’ visitation rights issues
- Third-party visitation rights issues
- Domestic violence and abuse
- Move away / parental relocation issues
- Modifications to child custody, visitation, and support
When you come to our office to discuss your child custody situation, we will listen carefully to your concerns and the hopes that you have for yourself and your child or children. Then, our attorney will give you an honest evaluation of your case and provide not only legal advice to solve your problem, but also the compassionate support you need to make these difficult decisions.
Generally, reaching an amicable, mutual agreement on child custody issues outside of court is usually best for the parents and the child. However, there are cases, particularly those involving domestic violence or child abuse, that demand custody or visitation rights be severely limited or be given solely to one parent. If this is true in your case, feel confident that our lawyers will vigorously assert your rights and express your interests in child custody and visitation matters at every stage of the process.
