How to find legal help for child custody issues in California

Every California parent wants what is best for his or her children. Families often face many complicated and difficult issues during a divorce. When a family is no longer residing under one roof, various child custody matters may pose serious legal challenges regarding the children's future care and relationships with both parents.

At Thomas Law Offices, we have nearly a decade of experience helping clients address such situations and obtain agreeable resolutions to their problems. In order to know how best to proceed, one first needs to understand the differences between physical and legal custody and what one's particular goals are with regard to one's own family. In some cases, a parent wishes to share both types of custody with the other parent, while others determine that seeking sole custody best suits their children's needs.

The court typically favors shared parenting after divorce because it believes that children tend to thrive best when they maintain a healthy, ongoing relationship with both parents. However, in some situations, that might not be in the best interest of the children. Therefore, an experienced attorney would be able to help a parent negotiate the terms of a future parenting plan. There are also times when a court order already exists and a parent is seeking a modification due to a pending change of residence or other personal life adjustment.

At Thomas Law Offices in California, we are prepared to assist you in all matters pertaining to child custody, visitation rights and other parental matters. You can call our toll-free number or access our online contact form via our website in order to schedule a free initial consultation. We understand that the care and well-being of your children is a priority, and we are dedicated to helping you exercise your rights while keeping your children's best interests at heart.

  • Best Attorney in the Valley!

    Kendra Thomas is one of the best attorneys I have ever worked with. Kendra and her team at Thomas Law Offices are compassionate and able to get to the heart of the matter. Not only can she quickly take in information, she can also think outside of the box to implement an effective game plan…. - Joseph, a Corporate client

  • Amazing Family Law Advocate!

    Kendra is a very thorough attorney. She paid great attention to detail. She is a pitbull in the courtroom and received compliments from the judge. We won a majority of our motions. I found her to be reasonable and understanding. I highly recommend her!- William, a Divorce client (5 star review)

  • One of the Best Advocates Around!

    I had a complicated case with a lot of assets. We had a business to divide and could not make heads or tails of it. My previous
    attorney messed up the case. However, when we found Thomas Law, the attorney was able to get to the bottom of how our assets should be divided.
    When Ms. Thomas presented the case, the judge realized that she knew her stuff. I had a very good experience with this firm.- Mae, a Family client (5 star review)

  • Competence! The Best Family Law Attorney Around!!

    When I first came to Kendra, was in a panic state. However, after meeting Kendra, I panic no more. I was in a case, where I was being worked “real good”, with an ex who is relentless with absolutely no morals. However, after being in the courtroom with Kendra, I do not believe that he will ever take me back to court. We got everything we wanted. Kendra knew what to ask and how to strategize the case. I would HIGHLY recommend Kendra to anyone involved in a high conflict divorce and/or child custody dispute.- Sharon, a Family client (5 star review)


    I am so grateful to have found Attorney Kendra Thomas to help me through a difficult divorce. She was amazing in getting me the justice I deserved. I have never heard of an attorney that returns calls promptly however Ms. Thomas and her assistant return calls in the same day. She is brilliant both in her intellect and strategy. I will continue to use her in ANY legal matter I am engaged in.- Mary, a Family client (5 star review)
