International child abduction

Child custody cases in California can become extraordinarily complicated when one parent takes the child to a foreign country. According to the U.S. State Department, there are at least 1,000 reports of international child abduction by a parent every year. Because resolving these cases requires cooperation between two governments, most of the children are never returned to the United States.

Providing for children under 5 in California

Children of California parents who have just gotten a divorce tend to need extra love and attention to get through such a potentially traumatic event. While most children and parents eventually get through the transition relatively unscathed, it is important for parents to communicate on a regular basis. This may allow a parent to let the other parent know about any problems that a child may have, especially if the child is young.

Determining if grandparents have visitation rights

In California, grandparents have the right to visit their grandchildren as long as two conditions are met. The first condition is that there must have been an existing bond between the grandparent and the grandchild. Second, the visitation rights of the grandparent must not interfere with the right of the parent to make decisions about his or her child.

How an attorney may help parents mediate during a custody dispute

When parents in California file for divorce, there is no presumption that one parent is automatically entitled to sole child custody. Instead, the court will consider the best interests of a child in awarding custody. Parents may have a difficult time going through a divorce without professional assistance. Although California family law courts require parents to seek mediation services, they may benefit from having a lawyer guide them through the process.
