Child Custody

Child custody battles rank among the most emotionally draining events a parent can experience. You love your children and want the best for them, but understanding the legally complex process of child custody and working with an ex to secure a mutually beneficial child custody arrangement can be incredibly challenging.

At Moshtael Family Law, our child custody attorneys understand how stressful child custody battles can be. Our compassionate, experienced team will work with you to navigate the child custody process, including:

  • Understanding the difference between legal and physical custody
  • Working with your ex to determine a fair and equitable child custody arrangement that benefits all parties
  • Understanding and establishing the appropriate visitation arrangement for your children
  • Helping you minimize the trauma of divorce and child custody battles for your children
  • Handling any legal issues that do emerge, such as disagreements between you and your ex concerning child custody arrangements or visitation plans

For most parents, arriving at a fair and equitable child custody arrangement is far and away the most crucial part of the divorce process. We understand how important your children are to you and can help you arrive at the desired outcome in your child custody case.

Domestic Violence

Domestic violence cases are challenging. Not only do survivors of domestic violence have to process a significant amount of trauma and stress, they also have to work through the complex legal process of resolving their domestic violence case. Doing so requires incredible mental and emotional fortitude.

At Moshtael Family Law, we understand just how difficult it can be to navigate a domestic violence case. Our empathetic, knowledgeable domestic violence attorneys can help you achieve your legal goals. Here are just a few ways we can help:

  • We'll work with you to file a domestic violence action against the perpetrator and initiate the court process.
  • We'll help provide you the assistance you need to file a restraining order or arrive at a similarly protective ruling in your court case.
  • We'll make sure you understand how your domestic violence case will impact your life going forward and can help you process the trauma of your case.

We're committed to helping our clients resolve their domestic violence cases in the most streamlined, effective manner.

Divorce Planning and Timelines

Divorce is hard, but having the right plans and timelines in place can make your divorce significantly smoother. At Moshtael Family Law, our knowledgeable divorce attorneys help our clients create effective divorce plans and timelines that streamline the divorce process. If you work with us to plan your divorce, we can help you:

  • Establish a realistic legal timeline for your case. We'll help you understand how long certain legal processes, such as child custody battles or property division, will take given your unique circumstances.

Modification of Support Orders

Most child support orders are established given the means of the parents and the needs of the children involved at the time divorce occurs. However, throughout life, our circumstances inevitably change. If you find yourself in a position where paying child support is no longer feasible or have decided your ex no longer needs to provide child support to you, you may want to modify your child support order.

At Moshtael Family Law, we understand that life changes quickly. Our knowledgeable, compassionate child support lawyers have the tools to help you modify your support order. We can help you:

  • Understand whether or not a recent event such as the loss of a job or a medical emergency makes you eligible to modify your support order
  • Decide how you want to modify your existing support order
  • Work with your ex and the court to help you legally modify your child support order and negotiate a new child support arrangement if necessary

We're committed to providing clients with high-quality child support services they can count on. If you'd like to learn more about how we approach support and custody order modification, read our modifying custody and support orders page.

Premarital and Postmarital Agreements

It's a common misconception that only people with no faith in their marriage sign premarital or postmarital agreements. In reality, premarital and postmarital agreements help provide both partners with additional security and commitment during the marriage. Common reasons for signing premarital and postmarital agreements include:

  • You or your partner own property or have made investments that you want to keep separate.
  • You have an idea for a business or future investment you want to protect.
  • You want to ensure you and your partner are on the same page concerning matters such as child custody, support, or alimony.
  • You have children or assets from a previous marriage that you want to protect.

At Moshtael Family Law, our experienced attorneys can help you and your spouse arrive at a mutually beneficial premarital or postmarital agreement. We can work with you to help make sure your assets and future are protected no matter what. To schedule a consultation from our legal team, contact us online or via phone at (714) 909-2561.
