Child Custody & Visitation

Pasadena Lawyer Handling Child Custody Issues

In California, child custody issues can be settled by agreement of the parties, through mediation or through the courts. At the Law Offices of Jesse A. Verdin in South Pasadena, my goal is to help you reach a negotiated agreement over issues such as the primary residence of your child, the visitation schedule and child support. However, if a negotiated agreement is not possible, I will aggressively pursue your rights in court.

To me, the most important issues in divorce are those involving the children. As a father of two, I understand how emotional, stressful and volatile these matters can be. When I handle a case that involves an abusive parent, I take it personally. As your attorney, I will do everything in my power to make sure your children are protected and placed in an appropriate environment.

I offer a free initial consultation by phone or in person to answer your questions about your parental rights.

Protecting Your Child's Best Interests

The best interests of a child are put first when deciding legal custody (the right to make decisions), physical custody (determination of with whom the child lives) and visitation issues. When both parents are responsible people, California courts believe that each parent has a right to be involved in raising his or her child and making the important decisions that come with being a parent.

Who Will Have Primary Physical Child Custody?

When it comes to determining which parent has primary physical child custody, there is no gender bias under California law. In reality, however, fathers usually have a difficult time obtaining primary physical custody. Traditionally, this has been because mothers have been the primary caretakers of children.

Professional women can find a similar bias when the father has been the primary caretaker. California courts are also in favor of providing both parents continuing and frequent contact with their children. I can help you protect your right to be a part of your child’s life during and after divorce.

I represent people whose child custody hearings will be handled in the following courthouses: Pasadena, Los Angeles, Pomona, Norwalk, Burbank, Compton, Long Beach, Torrance and Rancho Cucamonga.
