Child Custody Does Not Always Involve a Marriage—But You Still Have Rights to Custody

One of the most difficult issues to face is the prospect of losing contact with your child—even if it's only part of the time. We are here to help advise and guide you through the legal system as it pertains to child custody disputes, and to protect your rights and ensure that you are able to be a part of your child's life as much as possible.

We assist clients in the following matters related to child custody:

  • Legal Custody: Legal custody refers to a parent's legal right to participate in the decisions made for a child's health, welfare, and education. We will represent you to make sure that your right to participate in decisions is not infringed upon by the other parents.
  • Physical Custody: Physical custody refers to the child's physical presence with a parent. We will fight for your right to physical custody of your child, and help you understand your rights and duties through the process.
  • Mediation: Fighting over custody in court is never a fun process, and it's not healthy for your children. For that reason, we readily assist clients in engaging in mediation to reach a parenting arrangement or agreement with the other parent. This provides closure, predictability, and a speedy resolution to the issues you are facing.

You may schedule your initial consultation directly with Giammichele Law, APC, reach out to us online, or give us a call at 949-339-1845, to discuss your matter in more detail.
