Child Custody

Alameda and Contra Costa County Child Custody Lawyer

A divorce or separation will often involve a child custody dispute. Whether you are facing a custody dispute, a support issue, or are having difficulty agreeing on parenting time, we will work to protect your rights and the best interests of your children. At the Law Offices of Robert A. Goodman, we will work with you to determine the goals in your child custody case and identify the most effective strategy to accomplish those goals, exploring all options and alternatives.

Our attorneys will work with you to determine the best arrangements for you and your children and negotiate and/or litigate effectively to achieve those goals.

Our Family Law and child custody attorneys can assist you with any of the following:

In child custody cases, the parents must either agree to a custody arrangement, or an arrangement will be imposed by the court. Our parental-rights attorneys can assist you in negotiating agreements in custody disputes, or if necessary, will prepare the most compelling case for your custody objectives. We are experienced in taking cases to court and have a record of achieving results.

We seek to resolve custody cases out of court, but are prepared to take your case to hearing or trial and present the most effective and compelling arguments on your behalf.

In most cases, the state of California dictates that children should have frequent and continuing contact with both parents. We understand that in some cases, one parent is unfit to care for the children and we are especially interested in protecting those children. If a parent is unfit due to a history of neglect, abuse, or alcohol or drug abuse, we will work to prevent that parent from having contact with the children.

Contact The Law Offices of Robert A. Goodman for an initial consultation or case evaluation. We are happy to assist you.
