The Devoted Services of a Poway Child Custody Attorney in San Diego

As is readily agreed by both attorneys and couples undergoing divorce or legal separation in San Diego Superior Court, the issue of child custody and child visitation is one of the most emotionally contentious matters in the whole case. There are also numerous complications involved in child custody cases and a Poway child custody attorney in San Diego will certify to the fact that formulating a parenting plan that both parents agree to and is in the best interests of the child is one of the most difficult task in such cases. Emotions run very high in these cases and often client’s find it difficult to be objective and understandably so.

Important Recommendation

A child custody case and ensuing matters related to child support and child visitation rights involve many complexities. Before the Court agrees to a parenting plan unless the parents agree to all, the parents of the child must go through a mandatory mediation session presided over by a licensed Clinical Social Worker in Family Court Services and themselves come to an agreement about the parenting plan or a written recommendation will be submitted to the Court with a copy to both of the parents. Under the local rules in San Diego Superior Court, both parents have a right to have this report at least ten days before the court hearing for custody and visitation. A San Diego Judge takes note of the parenting plan recommendations made by the Clinical Social Worker in the event the parents fail to reach a mutually agreeable plan at the end of the mandatory mediation session and will, in most cases, follow the recommendations of the Family Court Services mediator.

The Child’s Best Interests Are the Most Crucial

A Poway child custody attorney helps his client prepare for these sessions by making him or her aware about the legal requirements to be fulfilled and how to present the case such that the most favorable outcome can be reached.

But a Poway child custody attorney does much more than preparing his client—the mother or the father of the child—for the mandatory mediation session. He also helps his client with the preparation of pleadings and makes court appearances on his or her behalf to present a strong case in front of the Judge and in this manner overall. The hearings can be very complicated and an attorney who is experienced in San Diego Superior Court can make a difference.

It is worth noting here that as per the California Family Law Code, in North County child custody cases that involve child neglect, child abuse, and/or child molestation, the Judge can order sole legal custody to only one parent. In all other cases, the Judge may order joint legal custody to both parents or make either one or both parents the physical custodian of the child which are more standard orders.
