If you are facing a divorce that involves shared children or you are no longer going to be living with your children’s other parent, the issue of child custody is primary. While there is a very strong emotional component to this matter, which will directly affect your parental rights, it is also a complex legal issue, and working closely with an experienced Salinas child custody attorney is always in your best interest.
In California, child custody breaks down into both legal and physical custody, and legal custody takes on the matter of who will be making those important parenting decisions that guide your children’s lives going forward. The kinds of decisions involved include those related to all the following:
While legal custody can be sole, which means that only one of you is assigned this decision-making authority, it can also be joint and addressed in any of the following ways:
Physical custody refers to parenting time, which determines when your children will be with you under your roof and when they will be with their other parent under theirs.

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.
This law firm made sure they got every single detail to my case. You could tell they truly care about their clients and doing everything they can to win your case. Truly professional and caring people!
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.
