San Jose Custody & Visitation Lawyer

San Jose Child Custody And Visitation Attorney

When you are going through a divorce or are contemplating ending your marriage, questions about your children are usually foremost in your mind. You may be wondering:

  • Will I be able to keep the children?
  • How will the court determine custody?
  • What is the difference between legal custody and physical custody? What does legal custody allow you to do?
  • What kind of visitation is best for my family?
  • Does my spouse have a right to see the children (if, for example, he or she was abusive)?

In my family law practice, I handle all matters related child custody, visitation and child support. I will represent you in emergency screenings, assessments and hearings to obtain restraining orders, if necessary. I also advise family law clients in matters involving paternity.
