Riverside Child Custody Attorneys

The divorce process is rife with decision-making. While no one likes the process, it is not designed to be adversarial or vindictive. Important, life-changing choices must be made as you move on to the next chapter of your life. While personal issues may impede decisions involving custody and visitation, an experienced attorney can help you assert your rights while looking out for the best interests of your children.

A San Bernardino Visitation Lawyer Focused On Your Children's Best Interests

When divorcing parents are not focused on the best interests of the children, custody and visitation matters become divisive. Emotional elements clash with legal complexities and sons and daughters become unseen and unheard victims. At the Law Offices of Catherine A. Schwartz, our objective is to put you in a position to be not just a good parent, but a good co-parent.

Custody falls into two categories: legal and physical. Legal custody allows a parent to make significant decisions involving education, health, religious upbringing and general welfare. California family courts lean more toward joint or shared legal custody of the children if possible. Primary physical custody involves the child's permanent residence and visitation or "time-sharing" rights for the noncustodial parent.

Riverside child custody lawyer Catherine A. Schwartz believes that parents who focus on the best interests of their children can ease the disruptive transition of one household becoming two. While court-approved mediation is required, negotiations between you and your spouse can fail. Exploring all options and pursuing the best outcome on behalf of you and your children may lead to the courtroom.
