Custody For Same Sex Parents

California courts are always concerned about the best interests of the children who are impacted by their decisions. That concern applies to kids from same-sex couples and LGBT parents as well as heterosexual parents who are divorcing or ending a domestic partnership.

All parents want fair treatment when it comes to child custody. It may require strong representation from an experienced lawyer to make sure you are treated properly in your custody case.
