The first thing our Roseville divorce lawyer does when taking on a new case is to gather all information up front. We do our research and obtain as much information as possible in order to help clients understand what issues could arise and what matters need to be resolved. Information is crucial to the success of any case, and we are dedicated to analyzing and presenting accurate, detailed facts.
Dedicating Our Best Efforts to Your Future:
There are several ways to approach your divorce case. You may be able to agree upon the various aspects of your divorce amicably through mediation or collaborative divorce. When this option is out of the question, however, we can help you fight for your rights through courtroom litigation. It is important for you to know that, if children are involved in the divorce, the judge will make various decisions with the child's best interests in mind, such as child support, custody, and visitation orders.
Our office provides solutions in all types of family law matters, including:

California law has a broad legal standard in determining how custody and parenting time should be allocated between a Father and Mother.
This standard is based on the answer to the question: What is the best interest of the child.
Factors to be considered include:
The child's health, safety and welfare.
The nature and amount of the child's contact with both parents.
History of drug or alcohol abuse.
History of physical abuse, and
Other factors that the court deems relevant.
The legislature has also declared that it is public policy to ensure that the children have frequent and continuing contact with both parents and encourages parents share the rights and responsibility of of child rearing unless such contact is not in the best interest of the children.
What does this mean?
As a father, I understand that a child needs both a Mother and a Father in their lives and I will work with both Mothers and Fathers to help you come to agreement on what is best for your individual child.
How you divide parenting time can also be dependent on the age of the child.
If one party screws up, that does not necessary mean that party loses a child forever. It simply means that a process needs to be designed to work back to the goals of frequent and continuing contact and shared parental responsibilities.
As a lawyer I cannot unring the bells of past discretions. The parent who is attempting to gain more time will have to follow a strict program to convince a court that increased parenting time is best for the child. The other parent needs to have safeguards in place to ensure that no harm be done.
