Helping California Parents Protect Their Children

Nobody knows your children better than you do. That is why, if you are involved in a child custody case, you need a lawyer who will take the time to listen to your concerns and pursue the course of action that is right for you and your family.

At the Law Office of Anthony Zunino in Santa Rosa, we guide parents through the process of negotiating and setting up a proposal for sharing the parenting of their children. If a negotiated solution for child custody and parenting time (visitation) can't be reached, we can present your position effectively in court.

Contact our family law firm today to schedule a consultation with attorney Anthony Zunino.

Pursuing the Right Parenting Plan in Your Circumstances

In California, there is no presumption that a child's mother or father will get primary custody after a divorce or other breakup. The preference is for both parents to have frequent and continual contact with their children, which is often accomplished through joint custody.

The overall goal of the child custody process is to adopt a parenting plan that is in the best interests of the child — a standard that takes many different factors into account.

California also has a preference for parents to reach agreements on child custody rather than litigating these sensitive issues in court. In fact, you cannot bring a child custody dispute before a judge unless you have attended a mandatory Family Court Services' mediation conference.

Once a final child custody order has been issued, it can only be modified after showing a significant change in the underlying circumstances.
