Focused on Helping You & Your Children

Family legal proceedings can be difficult and emotionally draining. At Law Offices of Steven Ibarra, our team of experienced professionals understands the emotional ambiguities and sensitive aspects of child custody cases. We take the entire family dynamic into consideration when finding a solution that best serves your needs and those of your children. Child custody cases can be difficult to navigate, which is why we make our services readily available to you. Our team is eager to help you every step of the way.

When making custody decisions, judges consider many factors, such as:

  • The child's age
  • Health, safety, and welfare of the child
  • The history of both parents, specifically if there is a history of domestic violence
  • The amount of contact that the child currently has with each parent
  • Any possible drug or alcohol use from either parent
  • The child's preference, depending on the age of the child and his ability to make a mature decision
  • Mutual agreements between the parents

Legal Custody, Physical Custody, & Visitation

When looking at child custody cases, it is important to consider the three main topics that are discussed, which are legal custody, physical custody, and visitation. The parent with legal custody makes important decisions about the child's education, medical care, and religious preference. Physical custody refers to the child's place of residence and which parent will be responsible for the daily care of the child. Visitation is given when the courts order sole physical custody to one parent. Whether you are seeking sole custody or joint custody, our team of legal professionals can help you find what is best for you and your child.
