The Child Custody Practice at the Law Office of Jennifer M. Sullivan

In California, when custodial and non-custodial parents cannot agree, the parties must attempt to resolve their differences through mediation. Once the mediation is complete, the parties can accept the recommendation of the mediator or obtain a temporary order from the court while a final ruling is pending.

Ms. Sullivan handles all matters related to the determination of child custody, filing the initial motion with the court, working with you to put together an agreement on custody (if possible), helping you prepare for mediation, representing your interest in court, or helping you seek enforcement or modification of an existing order.

In all child custody matters, Jennifer Sullivan emphasizes communication, encouraging clients to have open dialogue with the other parent to discuss the needs of the children and how to best meet those needs. She works closely with clients to identify effective solutions regarding physical custody (where the child resides) as well as legal custody (how important decisions about the child's welfare are made).
