Divorce is a complicated legal process, and rarely is it graced with 100 percent cooperation from both sides. It also puts a strain on everyone in the immediate family, and often affects children the worst. Arthur A.

It also comes with a long list of other sub issues, including child custody and visitation, child support, division of property and debt, and spousal and family support.

Child Custody

The question of who is granted custody of the children in the event of a divorce doesn’t have an easy answer. Both parents may seek either joint or sole custody, and conflict can often ensue as an ugly custody battle. If you’re struggling with your partner regarding child custody and visitation rights, or if you simply want to do what’s best for your children but don’t know the legal processes, having a caring attorney will help. Family law attorney Arthur A. Ferraro has years of experience putting the needs of children first, and he works with families to achieve the best possible solution for their unique situation.

Child Support

Every good parent wants what is best for their children, regardless of their relationship with their spouse. Thankfully the California courts feel this way too, and the laws are designed to give children all the support they need. In the event of a divorce, many variables will be considered when determining who will be granted custody of the children, and subsequently who will be required to pay child support. Like divorce, determining the amount and frequency of child support to be paid is based on many factors. Speaking with a competent family law attorney will help you ensure your children are getting everything they deserve.
