There is help to protect your child custody rights in California

It is true that many things do not last forever; however, the love between a parent and child is one that does endure. When you separate from the parent of your child, one of your biggest fears may be that you won't be able to achieve an appropriate and fair parenting plan. The California courts use guidelines to help determine a suitable child custody arrangement, but you will still benefit by having someone to negotiate on your behalf and looking out for you in court.

Every family is different, and every child benefits from contact with both parents -- provided those parents do not pose any physical or emotional danger. For that reason, you may be anxious to protect the relationship you have worked hard to establish with your child. When a couple parts ways, the split can lead to anxiety and uncertainty for all of the parties involved. One of the best ways to ensure that the parent/child bond is not harmed is to focus on arranging an optimal parenting plan that will protect the best interests of your child.

If you were never married to the other parent, you still have the right to pursue judicial relief to protect the exercise of parental rights consistent with your child's well-being. If you believe that your current custody agreement does not provide you with enough time with your child, or other circumstances in your life have changed, you can request that the court review the current arrangement and replace it with a plan that better reflects the needs of your relationship with your child. In certain instances, a court will allow your child to express his or her personal wishes to the court.

A California family law attorney who values the importance of the relationship you have with your child is an important asset. Regardless of what caused your relationship with the other parent to end, your son or daughter still needs you in his or her life. Fighting for a child custody  decision that truly reflects your child's best interests may be the most important thing you do for your family.
