Child Custody and Visitation

The child custody and visitation lawyers and attorneys of the San Jose office of The Moreno Family Law Firm can assist you in having the maximum possible time with your children

Child custody and visitation are areas, that in an ideal world, would be settled amicably by the parents taking into consideration the parenting skills of each parent and the best interests of the child.

However, in reality, parents often have pretty significant reasons for getting divorced. Sometimes these reasons revolve around one spouse trying to protect the children from the other spouse. Domestic violence, of course, is one primary reason. But, in addition to that, there are verbally abusive parents, emotionally abusive parents, sexually abusive parents, parents addicted to drugs or alcohol, uncaring or uninvolved parents, inept parents, depressed parents, narcissistic parents, parents who take up with an undesirable significant other, parents experiencing a change in sexual orientation and parents who try to alienate the child(ren) from the other parent. We have achieved successful results in all of above situations.

If protecting your child(ren) is one of your biggest concerns, you need an advocate who can turn the system to your advantage. You need a skilled litigator who can expose the falsehoods of the other party, and work with your witnesses and documentation to create a solid case for the truth. The Moreno Family Law Firm excels at presenting to custody evaluators and the judge the type of evidence they  need to make a decision in your favor. We also have achieved good results defending parents from erroneous allegations.

Litigating a custody/visitation case can be an expensive. However, these costs have to be weighed against the benefits that can be obtained. What is really expensive is when clients come to us after they tried to save money by using a less experienced attorney. Then we have to try to undo the damage, which is a difficult and costly endeavor.

It is important to see us early in a contested custody/visitation case. We do charge for the first consultation. But you will get much better information and advice in that first hour than you will get from most attorneys over an entire case. It can change the way your entire case progresses from that moment on.
