Ensuring Your Child Custody Arrangement Promotes Your Child's Best Interests

When estranged parents have different views on how to raise their children, custody disputes can become heated. In California, it is important to secure favorable child custody terms before a judge finalizes the agreement. Courts will modify custody and visitation terms after a divorce; however, this process can be costly and time-intensive.

Working with a skilled lawyer can help you obtain a court-ordered arrangement that benefits your children and promotes your parenting rights. At Fischer & Van Thiel, LLP, our family law attorneys are experienced negotiators and gifted litigators. We use our substantial legal background to develop strategies that get the results you need to protect what matters: your children's welfare and your access to your children.

Focused On Your Child's Well-Being

Our San Marcos firm represents parents throughout north San Diego County in mediation and litigation. We help our clients design parenting plans that encourage stability as the entire family transitions to a new life.

Our plans support state standards for the best interests of the child. We address a range of issues that include:

  • The child's age and relationship with each parent
  • The child's physical, emotional and psychological needs
  • The ability of the parent to provide housing, food, health care, education and other necessities
  • Past drug or alcohol abuse or physical, emotional or psychological abuse
  • The child's expressed parenting preference, for children 14 years and older

Whether you agree to terms in mediation or negotiation sessions or need the court to determine custody terms, our lawyers are qualified to defend your family law interests.

We also represent parents for post-judgment matters. We file petitions on behalf of clients seeking to modify or challenge custody terms due to relocation, deployment or other significant changes in circumstances.

If your estranged spouse has violated the terms of your custody order, our attorneys act promptly to secure the appropriate remedy. We take our role as your advocate seriously and will explore all available options to resolve your custody and divorce concerns.
