Child Custody Issues?

Last updated on September 4, 2023

When a legal matter affects the children, the stakes are enormous for everyone involved. While the relationship between parents may be over, the parent-child relationship lasts a lifetime. Unless factors such as abuse or neglect are involved, courts generally favor allowing both parents frequent and continuous contact with the child.

The family law attorneys of Sherlock // Anderson, PC, in Roseville have years of experience helping our clients with children’s issues such as custody and parenting time (also known as visitation). We understand what judges and family law professionals in Sacramento County and Placer County expect, and we help you protect your rights as a parent.

“When people divorce, the family dynamic shifts. We will help your family move through the process as painlessly as possible so you can adjust to your new normal with a modified parenting plan.” — Attorney Sara Anderson

The Best Interests Of The Children

California has very specific laws when addressing the best interests of children. Whether your parental relationship stems from a dissolving marriage or a dating relationship that no longer exists or is created by court order, the children must come first. If you are filing for divorce, or have paternity litigation or a guardianship proceeding, your custody case may include input from county welfare specialists.
