Yorba Linda Child Custody Lawyer - Primary, Shared, Joint, Physical, Legal Custody
When people come to a divorce lawyer, they often have a lot of labels in mind when they talk about custody - labels like primary custody, shared custody, joint custody, physical custody, legal custody. At the Law Office of Brenda McCune, we know that the labels (and the connotations associated with those labels) can prove formidable barriers to finding a parenting arrangement that is in the best interests of the child.
"In the best interests of the child" can have different meanings to each parent. Restructuring a family with shared parenting arrangements can lead to many disagreements.
At the Law Office of Brenda McCune, we work with clients from Yorba Linda, Placentia, Fullerton, Brea, and Anaheim to help them negotiate parenting relationships. "We suggest that clients negotiate from strength," says child custody lawyer Brenda McCune. "It is best to reach an agreement, but when that isn't possible in a broken relationship, there is the option of trial."
California child support laws encourage both parents to have significant parenting time with children. A move-away or relocation by one parent can dramatically affect the other parent's time with a child - and increase child support obligations.
Substance abuse and domestic violence are important factors that should be aired thoroughly with lawyer Brenda McCune and with the court. Continuity, stability and safety are all in the best interests of the child. The Law Office of Brenda McCune works with child custody experts (psychologists and psychiatrists) and with specialists available through the court to make sure all relevant issues are considered.
In articles published in the Orange County Lawyer Magazine, certified family law specialist Brenda McCune has written about child custody concerns.
The Law Office of Brenda McCune represents clients in and around the California communities of Yorba Linda, Placentia, Fullerton, Brea and Anaheim.
