Child Custody Lawyer in Sacramento, CA

Within the domain of family law, one of the most poignant and sensitive aspects is undoubtedly the matter of child custody. This complex issue becomes especially prominent and challenging in situations where families are undergoing major changes, such as divorce or separation. The emotional toll of these transitions is heightened exponentially when decisions must be made about a child’s future living arrangements and caretaking responsibilities.

Why Nickens & Nazaryan, Inc.

Understanding the emotional turbulence and the high stakes involved in these cases, the attorneys at Nickens & Nazaryan, Inc., located in Sacramento, CA, are deeply committed to their role in these critical circumstances. Each attorney in our team is steadfast in their dedication to offering legal services that are not only professional and effective, but also imbued with a profound sense of compassion.

In child custody disputes, the primary concern of the court is the welfare and best interests of the child. Our attorneys have a thorough understanding of the factors that California courts consider in making these determinations, including the child’s health, safety, and welfare, the nature and amount of contact with both parents and the history of abuse by either parent, among other factors.

What We Do for You

Our attorneys are skilled in representing clients in both physical and legal custody issues. Physical custody pertains to where the child will live, while legal custody involves the right to make significant decisions about the child’s upbringing, such as education, healthcare, and religious upbringing. These custody decisions can take several forms, including joint custody, where both parents share responsibilities, or sole custody, where one parent is given primary responsibility.

Nickens & Nazaryan, Inc. attorneys are adept at working with clients to develop parenting plans that address both types of custody. These plans, which must be approved by the court, outline how parents will share and divide responsibilities and decision-making for the child. Our attorneys’ adept negotiation skills can often facilitate agreements that meet the needs of all parties, thereby avoiding the uncertainty of a court decision.

Dynamic Preparation with Empathy

In situations where negotiation isn’t possible or doesn’t yield a mutually agreeable result, our attorneys are prepared to advocate vigorously for our clients’ rights in court. We understand the gravity of these proceedings and how they can shape the future relationships between parents and children. We take that responsibility seriously, ensuring our clients’ voices are heard and their rights protected throughout the process.

Child custody isn’t a static issue; as children grow and circumstances change, modifications to the original custody arrangements may become necessary. Our attorneys can assist clients in pursuing these modifications, whether it involves seeking a change or opposing one. We understand that these changes can be disruptive and challenging, so we work to ensure a smooth transition that continues to serve the child’s best interests.
