Protect Your Relationship With Your Kids
Southern California Child Custody Lawyers
Protecting the Interests of You & Your Children
Child custody is one of the tougher and altogether more emotional aspects of a divorce. At Holstrom, Block & Parke, a Professional Law Corporation, our top priority is to encourage our clients to put their children first as divorce can have a serious and potentially lifelong impact on them.
Unfortunately, co-parents often have differing views on the definition of “best interests,” which is typically what leads to highly contested legal proceedings. This is where our experienced family law attorneys can help. We seek to pursue solutions that put your child’s needs first, without compromising your rights as a parent.
