Struggling over child custody can add another painful stress to a divorce
proceeding. In California, the courts focus on creating a fair custody
arrangement where both parents have equal responsibility for raising children.
This equal responsibility includes financial plans and both parents having
access to their children. Finding the right accommodation while keeping
your family emotionally healthy can be a significant challenge. Too many
divorce cases destroy a family by using children as pawns in an emotional
war between parents. At the Morris Law Firm, we focus on helping mothers
and fathers avoid excessive conflict on behalf of their children.
