Providing Compassionate, Intelligent Counsel

Custody & Visitation

Child custody and visitation are among the red flag issues in any divorce, forums in which both sides of a divorce question can flash anger and seek revenge.

The big losers, of course, are the children themselves. Which is why our state of California so values a factor known as the “best interest of the child” in determining levels of custody and visitation, and for how long, and with whom.

At my experienced family law firm in Torrance, the Law Office of Stuart E. Bruers, I have mediated this phase of divorce, sought consensus and litigated aggressively on behalf of my many California clients in more than 20 years of practice, from Los Angeles County to the South Bay.

I listen to you intently, remain receptive to your wishes throughout the legal process and stay available for any questions or concerns you might have. I’ll work hard for your right to appropriate access to your child or children. I perform that work to show you my commitment to professional legal representation on your behalf.

When wrangling over child custody and visitation issues jeopardizes the progress of your divorce, or if sudden changes in your life call for modifications of them, contact my family law office in Torrance today. Reach us by phone, fax or e-mail. I have flexible meeting schedules and can arrange for Spanish language interpretation.

Committed to Professional Child Custody & Visitation Representation

For the past 20-plus years, my full-service statewide law firm of Stuart E. Bruers has successfully addressed child custody and visitation issues such as:

  • Living arrangements
  • Parental decision-making: schooling, faith, religion, medical care and financial considerations
  • “Best interests of the child”
  • Parental relocation matters
  • Divorce mediation
  • Custody and visitation litigation

Only by carefully listening to you, on all facets of custody and visitation, can I help pinpoint your objectives for formulating joint or sole custody arrangements without losing sight of the importance of the child’s wishes and best interests.

I handle parental relocation matters as well. If you are in need of post-judgment modifications due to a former spouse’s long-distance relocation, I will do everything I can to mediate or negotiate an outcome amenable to all, without the length and costs of litigation.

I also offer minor counsel services, representing children during visitation and custody proceedings. Regardless of your child’s age, it is important that their voice is heard. As a minor’s counsel, I prioritize the child’s best interests above all else. I carefully interview the child, assess their needs and preferences, and communicate to the court on their behalf.

Whatever the variation on the custody and visitation theme, I have the experience, legal and people skills and personal commitment to you to get the job done. That has been the story of our legal leadership for over 20+ years. Be in touch with us in Torrance today.
