Protecting Fathers During Child Custody Legal Disputes
Custody issues between parents, either as part of a divorce or between unmarried parents, are never easy. As these events are unfolding, some men prefer not to confront these issues. In some cases, men don’t even read the agreements they are signing. This can have a major impact on the time a man will spend with his children.
Above all, it is important to take a proactive approach in custody and visitation cases. When you take control of your situation and hire an attorney, you will give yourself the best opportunity to maintain strong relations with your children. I am San Dimas lawyer Stephanie Story. I devote my practice to protecting fathers’ rights, and, in particular, fathers’ custody rights.
Protecting And Preserving Your Custody And Visitation Rights
The Law Offices of Stephanie E. Story represents fathers facing all types of situations, from divorcing fathers to fathers who want to modify an existing custody agreement. In your free initial consultation, we will talk about your situation so I can diagnose your issues and create a plan of action. We will look at whether there are any existing court orders, your current custody and visitation arrangements and other important factors.
If you are going through divorce, I will take all appropriate measures to help you reach a custody arrangement that is in your child’s best interests. Whether we bring your case to a judge or negotiate the issues with your spouse and her lawyers, I will provide skilled representation and compassionate support.
In other cases, however, I may have to modify, or change, an existing court order. In these situations, I will file a motion to the court and explain to the judge why you should be able to spend more time with your children. While the facts of every case are different, I have successfully represented many fathers in custody modification and child relocation cases.
Taking On Child Support Matters
In addition, I represent fathers in child support matters. Under California law, child support is based on a number of factors, including the number of children, each parent’s income, the costs of health insurance and other issues. If you need to modify your child support to reflect changes in your life, I am able to help.
