Child Custody in Los Angeles: Settlement vs. Litigation

In determining child custody and parenting plans, it's critical to take a holistic view of your child's emotional, psychological, medical, academic, social, and spiritual needs.  It's also important to take stock of each parent's temperament, strengths, weaknesses, and parenting history. ​

California courts are not permitted to prefer a parent as custodian because of that parent's sex.

We have extensive experience settling and litigating child custody and visitation disputes, including use of private custody evaluations, private co-parenting counselors, parenting plan assessments, and professionally supervised visitations. 

Whenever possible, we negotiate child custody disputes to be resolved outside of the courtroom. Contested child custody, with ongoing litigation, is rarely in a child's best interest. 

That said, we know that many parents have to fight for their children. Sometimes, one parent has addiction issues or has committed domestic violence. Sometimes, parents use withholding parenting time as a weapon to hurt the other parent


A great child custody attorney will ensure that you have the documents, evidence, witnesses, and experts needed to prove your case in court if necessary.

The right child custody lawyer for you will be able to craft a plan to meet your needs.
