Taking On All Types Of Child Custody Issues

Children are at the center of every parent's life. If you are going through divorce or a custody dispute, you may be stressed and anxious about preserving your relationship with your children. Your lawyer must be able to help you find sensible, lasting solutions to these issues.

I am attorney Marsha Baucom. From my office in Santa Ana, I represent clients across Orange County and beyond in all types of child custody cases. While I represent both mothers and fathers, I have significant experience helping fathers who want to take a greater role in their children's lives.

I handle everything from highly contested, extremely complex disputes to relatively straightforward matters as well. Many of my child custody cases stem from divorce, while others arise out of paternity cases. Still other cases involve allegations or acts of domestic violence. I also handle issues involving grandparents' rights and post-divorce custody modification issues. Whatever your needs, you can count on me to do what is right for you and your children.

Providing Candid Advice And Counsel About Your Child Custody Situation

In California, courts divide custody in terms of physical custody (where the child lives) and legal custody (who makes decisions about the child's welfare). Many people come to my law firm seeking sole custody of their children. It is very rare for California courts to grant a parent sole custody, and will typically only do so if one or more of these factors are present.

  • Child abuse
  • Domestic violence
  • Drug abuse
  • Alcohol abuse
  • Child pornography

If the other parent of your child is abusing you, your child, or abusing drugs or alcohol, I will work with you to build a case and document why you should have sole custody. On the other hand, if you have been accused of domestic violence, or if you have drug or alcohol abuse, I will help you get appropriate treatment and help you regain your custody rights.

I will carefully listen as you explain your situation and then offer my recommendations of how the court is likely to view your case. I want you to make informed decisions about your custody situation, and don't want you to spend money on attorneys' fees on something that is not likely to be successful. This approach has led to satisfied clients and effective results time and again.
