San Diego Child Custody & Visitation Attorneys

Compassionate Representation for the Best Interests of Your Child: Call 619-255-8500

Often custody and visitation matters are emotionally-charged issues for both the parents and the children, especially if litigation is required to settle differences.

In California, both spouses must submit to mandatory custody and visitation mediation prior to having a custody and visitation matter heard in Family Court. Despite this requirement, there are significant differences in the mediation process based on the county where the action was filed. For example, in San Diego, mandatory custody and visitation mediation through Family Court Services is non-confidential. What that means, on a practical level, is if the parents do not reach an agreement at mediation, the mediator will issue recommendations to the judge regarding what parenting arrangements the mediator thinks is in the best interest of the child or children.

Real Client Testimonials

“She is not afraid to go toe to toe in the court room against opposing counsel and she made my ex and her counsel look vastly unprepared and downright foolish at times. Lauren paid attention to every detail and worked hard to keep costs down in what I would consider a high conflict divorce. Lauren is extremely trustworthy, so much I trusted her to represent me in court even while I was deployed overseas, which speaks volumes about her character.”
- Rob M., Former Client
