Protecting Your Relationship With Your Children After Divorce
As you head toward divorce, nothing matters as much as protecting the relationship you have with your children. It’s irreplaceable. Divorce may end your marriage, but family life continues, and you must know what rights you have to keep that relationship strong.
We can help here at Genesis Family Law, in Chula Vista, and San Diego, California. We have about 80 years of combined experience, with several attorneys who are certified by the California Bar Board of Legal Specialization as Family Law Specialists. We have been doing this for a long time, and we understand what rights you have, what challenges you face and what legal tactics work best for every case.
Our goal is always to put you first. We get to know you. We understand your situation. We consider the circumstances and tell you about the legal options to help you protect your rights. We are very dedicated and hands-on, making communication easy. While we are compassionate and caring, we also fight aggressively on your behalf.
Three of our attorneys, Colleen A. Warren, Julie O. Wolff, and Amy E. West, are also trained as Minor’s Counsel, whereby they are often appointed to represent children in a divorce or paternity action. With specialized training, Minor’s Counsel assist the court in cases that can involve child abuse and/or high conflict custody battles.
What The Court Considers
One thing you need to understand is what the court considers during a case like this. It includes:
- The best interests of the children
- Your schedule and your spouse’s schedule
- What options give the children continuity and consistency
- Which person has been the children’s primary caretaker during the marriage
- External factors, such as other relationships or criminal records
These are just a few examples, but remember that the overriding mission for the court is to focus on the child’s best interests at all times. They try to determine what was working for the children before and how that can continue.
Helping You Prepare
Many people do not know how this process works, or they have unrealistic expectations. The reality is that most of the time, parents get equal access to the children. We will provide you with an honest assessment of what you can expect, and then we will fight hard to protect your relationship with your children.
