We do not require a retainer. Fortunately, when the Pandemic hit us in March 2020, we had already been a paperless office for many years with two cloud based case management systems. However, the Pandemic propelled us to make many improvements to our client service protocols, retainer requirements, direct calendaring, electronic exchanges and remote systems being some examples. This has allowed our firm to concentrate more on client service and less on wasteful antiquated management systems. If you entrust us with your family law matter, you'll be in excellent hands.

What You Need to Support What You Want

When it comes to determining how much time parents can get, there are some factors that both parents and a judge will need to consider. 

  • How old are the kids? If the children are younger, the person who wants sole custody of the children will need to be more flexible when it comes to how much time they can afford to give their children (typically, in addition to a job). As children get older, both parents working a traditional job would likely have less of an impact on how much time is spent with the children because the kids may have after-school activities and be capable of taking care of themselves at the house while parents are away at work.
  • Were you accused of abuse? An Alameda County, California child custody lawyer knows that one of the biggest risks to a father getting custody rights is if there have been false allegations of child abuse. When these kinds of accusations have been made, it is imperative that you work with your attorney to provide evidence to the contrary. Don’t lose heart. 
  • What if my spouse makes false claims against me? When a spouse makes false claims against the other parent and continues to do so in front of the children, it may be time to get legal help. Consistently harming the reputation of the other parent can tarnish how children view them. If this happens, you can speak with your lawyer about fighting for your custody rights to take your kids away from this kind of emotional abuse.
