To get your questions answered, give my office a call at (619) 304-8499. I’m here to help.

Child Custody & Relocation

Knowing your rights as a parent can help you get the result that you and your child need. During child custody cases there are three areas of focus: legal custody, physical custody, and visitation. Understanding how each affects you and your child can help you determine what is best for your relationship with your child.

In addition to offering child custody legal help, I also use my skill as a La Mesa family law attorney to help parents who are either attempting to relocate or are attempting to prevent a custodial parent from relocating with their child. These cases have a tendency of becoming complicated, which is why it is pertinent that you have a skilled attorney who can help you during every step.

In relocation cases, the courts make a decision based on several factors, including:

  • The child's age
  • The relationships between both parents and the child
  • The distance of the move
  • The child's preference, if the child is mature enough
  • Reasons for the move
  • The details of the custody agreement

Make sure your case is properly presented to ensure the full protection of your parental rights.

Don't wait any longer – call (619) 304-8499 today.

  • Great Attorney in a difficult time

    “I utilized Andrea's legal services to help me resolve a difficult and bitter child visitation dispute. Andrea was able to successfully make in-roads on a new visitation agreement that both parties could support. I am extremely pleased that Andrea was able to resolve my legal matter within the 45-day deadline I put forth. Although I hope not to have to return to court for another family related matter, however if I did, I would strongly consider retaining Andrea services in the future. Andrea is a true professional and will get the "job" done.”
