We Know What's At Stake

At Ross Family Law, we appreciate the importance of every child, and we value the meaningful role that parents play in their children's lives. You can look to our firm for guidance on the complexities of custody and visitation rights.

Our Pleasanton child custody lawyers bring a strong background to the representation of these cases. Our extensive litigation experience proves invaluable when custody disputes end up in court. However, we are adept at pursuing out-of-court resolutions when appropriate.

Our firm is also well-equipped to deal with extenuating circumstances such as allegations of domestic abuse, substance addiction or neglect, which can have a tremendous impact on custody proceedings. We can help you overcome these and other challenges.

How To Approach Child Custody in California

To discuss how a visitation schedule or specific child custody outcome may affect your current situation, you should not hesitate to contact our office as soon as you can. A Pleasanton child custody attorney at our firm can explain your options and how we can help. This can be one of the most highly contested, complex, and critical areas of a divorce, which is why we encourage you to seek professional counsel to support your case.

Can a Father Get 50/50 Custody in California?

Child custody laws in California do not require a 50/50 parenting time for joint custody. Therefore, joint physical custody is typically synonymous with a 50/50 custody schedule. However, joint custody is appropriate because each parent has significant periods with the children.

Choosing the Right Child Custody Lawyer in Pleasanton, CA

If you and your spouse are currently going through a divorce or you are having trouble agreeing on a visitation schedule or child custody agreement, we can help. Our firm is highly experienced at dealing with matters of child custody and visitation. We understand that nothing is more important than your children, and we work hard to help you secure the best outcome for you and your family.

When the court is deciding child custody, there are a number of factors they may consider, such as:

  • The current relationship between the parent and child
  • Where each parent lives
  • The child’s preferences regarding custody (if the child is of a certain age)
