Practice Area: Child custody
Outcome: Mother agreed to an equal timeshare and to remain in California.
Description: Mother attempted to move out of state with the minor child, and the Court ordered a custody evaluation to determine the child’s best interests. I represented Father, who opposed the move. After advising him throughout the evaluation process, it resulted in a recommendation against the move away. The matter went to trial, and after a half day of trial, opposing counsel approached with an offer to settle. Mother agreed to an equal timeshare and to remain in California.
