Established Attorney Manages Child Custody Disputes in California

Resolving issues vital to your child’s future

Child custody is one of the most difficult issues a parent faces during divorce. The Law Offices of Karen Cline is dedicated to protecting your rights to raise your child in a healthy, thriving environment. I represent families in California in all aspects of child custody and visitation, including:

  • Primary and joint custody arrangements
  • Visitation rights
  • Grandparent visitation
  • Modification of custody and visitation orders
  • Enforcement of orders
  • Decisions related to religion, education and upbringing of the child

Reliable counsel provides advantages in mediation

Children are best served when parents maintain a cordial relationship. Through the structured process of mediation, couples can often set aside hostility and agree on key decisions affecting their children. Mediation can be a highly effective tool for parents to preserve their children’s well-being and the stability of their lives during the turbulent process of divorce. Mediation takes some of the stress out of child custody conflicts and puts important child-rearing decisions in the hands of the parents rather than the court. I meticulously develop mediation strategies that carefully guide the negotiating process toward healthy resolution.

Skilled litigation in family court

In some cases, litigation is necessary to protect a child’s best interests. When one parent refuses to compromise or expresses hostility toward the other parent, negotiations fail. Sometimes a parent may even pose a danger to the child’s well-being. In these cases, litigation is the most appropriate forum for establishing parental rights. My firm’s methodical approach to litigation enables you to feel confident that your children are protected and your parental rights are secure.
