Child Custody and Visitation
Glendale Child Custody Attorney
Nothing is more important parents than their child. It is no surprise that child custody disputes can be extremely heated and contentious in nature. As a law firm that concentrates exclusively in family law matters, the Law Offices of Liana Stepanyan has helped many mothers and fathers resolve complex custody and parenting time disputes through negotiations, mediation and trial.
We always encourage parents to put children’s interests first and avoid the stress that a contested custody dispute can place on children. We understand, however, that even the most well intentioned parents can have legitimate disputes over the best interests of a child and taking a case to trial is sometimes necessary to fight for what a parent feels is best for his or her child.
If you are getting a divorce or need help seeking or opposing a motion for modification of child custody, our firm can provide experienced representation on your behalf. To contact our law office in Glendale, California, call 818.334.2932.
The Best Interests of the Child
If you and your spouse are unable to reach an agreement on child custody, a judge will hear your case and issue an order that clearly defines the custodial and parenting time that will be awarded to each parent. In reaching a decision, the judge presiding in your case will ask one simple question: What custodial arrangement is in the best interests of your child?
How issues are framed and argued can have a significant impact on the final order of the court. If retained to handle your divorce, paternity or modification proceeding, our firm will take the time necessary to understand the family dynamics unique to your case. We will file all appropriate papers and motions on your behalf, present the court with affidavits in support of your motion for custody and prepare for the possibility of trial. As a law firm that practices exclusively in divorce and family law, we have helped clients throughout Southern California with contested child custody disputes.
