5 Tips on How to Win Custody of Your Child

"How do I win custody of my child?" is a very common question asked by divorcing parents. However, there is no magic we can really do in court that determines which parent is going to 'win' custody of their child.

Domestic Violence Resources in Orange County

Domestic violence is a very serious issue that affects people of all ages, races, socioeconomic status and education levels. And, abusers are not necessarily always men. Typically, abusers resort to domestic violence to gain or maintain power or control over their loved one. Domestic abuse is not limited solely to physical abuse; it may include emotional abuse, verbal threats, and even harming a family pet in the presence of children. If children are involved, it is critical that you immediately seek to obtain a restraining order against your abuser.
