Child Custody

Child Custody Negotiations Family Lawyer in La Mesa

Negotiating vs. Fighting: Who Gets the Kids When?

There are reasons you and your child’s mother or father aren’t together anymore. You probably had a breakdown in communication and just don’t want to deal with him or her anymore, right? As a trusted La Mesa family lawyer proudly representing The Law Offices of Andrea Schneider, you can rest assured I can help you! In fact, I will listen to exactly what you want, give you guidance based on my experience, and we will come up with a plan which works for you and your kids. Then, I will contact your ex to negotiate on your behalf.

I will work tirelessly to help the both of you create an agreement which works best for your family, especially your kids. I have used this strategy with many clients and it has been very effective. I know this is an emotionally challenging time, which is where I can step in to really help. I am a skilled problem-solver and will do my best to decrease your stress while helping you come up with a unique plan best for your family.

If this strategy doesn’t work, we will go to court. There are some problems with going to court as it can be quite expensive and time-consuming as it may take months to get in front of a judge. Another major issue with going to court is you are giving the judge, who knows very little about what’s best for you and your family, the power to make very important decisions and orders.

If these orders are violated, there are consequences. There are, however, benefits to negotiation, including the fact you are able to focus on what’s best for you and your kids based on your lifestyle, it is less expensive, and less stressful. It is also a speedier process in which you have more control of the outcome. You may negotiate through me to get what you want versus being ordered by a judge to do things you may not want to do. This is preferable because few people know your family better than you.
