I am Thompson and Belnap, APC, an experienced family lawyer serving clients throughout Vista, North County San Diego and the surrounding areas. I understand how much mothers and fathers value the time they get to spend with their children. I also understand the stress and uncertainty that come with having children as you go through the divorce process.

How Are Custody and Parenting Time Calculated?
Parents can often agree on custody arrangements and parenting time plans to the benefit of everyone involved. These plans must be approved by the court, but they are rarely rejected so long as the "best interests of the child" standard is met. I work hard to help my clients come to agreements whenever possible - parents are more likely to abide by the order when they were an integral part of constructing the agreement.
Not all couples can reach an agreement, however, which is why having an experienced family lawyer on your side can be vital to getting the results you need. You need an attorney who understands the factors the court will weigh, as well as an advocate who can prepare arguments to sway the court to your side. Such factors include:
- The health, safety and welfare of the child
- Evidence of physical, emotional or psychological abuse
- The potential impact on a child's schooling, activities and social life
- The past relationships between parents and the child
- Evidence of past drug or alcohol abuse
- All other factors specific to your situation
