Established California Lawyers Manage Child Custody Disputes
Attentive attorneys help parents in the Oakland area resolve vital issues
If you are at odds with your child’s other parent about where your child should live, how much time they should spend with each parent or how they should be raised, it is essential to seek the advice of a qualified family law attorney. The counselors at O'Neil Law Firm can present your case and advocate for your rights to raise your child in a healthy, thriving environment. We represent parents in California child custody disputes in the Oakland area and throughout California. Above all else, our law firm is committed to protecting your child’s best interests while upholding your parental bond.
Strategic mediators work for fair parenting time agreements
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: it 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. Our attorneys use mediation strategies to guide the negotiation process toward a healthy resolution.
Skilled litigators represent parents in family court
In some cases, litigation is necessary to protect a child’s best interests. When one parent will not 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. Our firm’s methodical approach to litigation enables our clients to feel confident that their children are protected and their parental rights are secure. The attorneys at O'Neil Law Firm represent clients in matters related to:
- Primary and joint custody arrangements
- Visitation rights
- Grandparent visitation
- Modification of custody and visitation orders
- Enforcement of orders
- Juvenile delinquency and dependency proceedings
- Decisions related to religion, education and upbringing of the child
The uncertainty of litigation can be stressful for parents and children alike. As your committed representatives, we are prepared to address all of your concerns and those of your family in cases involving the custody of your children.
