Child custody is a primary term of every divorce involving shared children. Child custody concerns go well beyond just divorce, however. If you share a child with someone to whom you are not married, you can face child custody issues, and post-divorce modifications are also common. Whatever the issue is, however, having an experienced child custody attorney in Monterey is in your best interest.

If you have decided a divorce is the best route for you, I highly recommend working with Levi and his team. Calm and collected, Levi will guide you through the process. His goal is to work strategically and methodically to get you the best outcome. He does not rush you into options or to settle on things you are unsure or uncomfortable with. He also does not drag out the process any longer than it needs to be. His support team (call scheduling, payment) are responsive and helpful.

Patricia has been so helpful and provided excellent service. My husband and I are so grateful for all the help she has provided to help me immigrate to the United States. We really could not have gotten through it without her help. A big thank you to Patricia\'s assistant, Ingrid as well for always being prompt with responses and helping us get all the paperwork ready at each stage. I highly recommend Patricia for anyone who needs immigration help.
Thank you Miranda and team for the excellent service provided. Miranda is a compassionate, understating, extremely knowledgeable and professional attorney. Her team was always on top of everything making my legal process less stressful. I could never thank Miranda and her assistant Ingrid for holding my hand throughout this difficult process (literally). Miranda is one of the BEST immigration lawyers ever! I would definitely recommend her.
They represented my custody case and handled it like it is their own case and they are best in Monterey County.
