San Jose Child Custody and Visitation Rights
Child Custody Attorney in San Jose
Child custody is often one of the most important and contentious issues in a divorce proceeding. At the Law Offices of Thomas Chase Stutzman, A Professional Corporation we have a high rate of success resolving custody and visitation disputes.
The firm has extensive experience in all matters related to child custody, including:
In California, the legal standard when there is a dispute over either custody or visitation is "the best interest of the child." Generally, that means that the court will attempt to preserve the status quo, since stability is of crucial importance for minor children. If custody and/or visitation are issues, as your attorneys, part of our task is to prove what the status quo was in the recent past. The status quo will usually be continued with custody and visitation orders except in cases of emergency, where the court may modify custody and/or visitation to protect the minor children.
