Child Custody Lawyer Buena Park

Best child custody Attorney in Buena Park

Binoye Jos is the best Child Custody lawyer in Buena Park. Mr. Jos experienced his own lengthy, costly Child Custody battle. After firing his attorneys for not obtaining a reasonable result – the “best” in Orange County, and at a cost of more than $400,000 – he took it upon himself to fight his own battle in court. The outcome? He WON his case. So he became an attorney, so that he can fight for YOU.

The best possible situation for a family that is splitting apart is to mediate the matter, instead of fighting it out in court. Mediation is the most cost-effective, efficient manner to settle such matters. But mediation is only effective when parents are amenable to working things out in a reasonable manner.

Sometimes, however, if an opposing party acts unreasonably, we at JOS FAMILY LAW utilize the law and the courts to the fullest extent in order to protect our client and their child’s best interests. Family Law courts in California – and public policy, for that matter – favor “frequent and continuing” contact with both parents. Therefore, parents should always ask themselves whether they are acting in the best interests of their child, before deciding that the child should live with only one parent. Sometimes, overprotective parents genuinely believe that they are the only parent who can properly care for their child. But the real question is: Is this belief true? A parent who truly loves their child will love them enough to share them with the other parent.

Of course, there are circumstances where the other parent is violent, has committed domestic violence, or is an abuser of alcohol or another substance. In these cases, of course, the child must be protected from the offending parent. Child custody matters are never cut and dried and, therefore, shared custody is not always the right answer. But so long as there is no physical or psychological abuse by the other parent, child custody determinations should never be used to thwart the other parent’s rights.

If you are truly looking for an attorney who will mediate, whenever possible, and will use the courts to make determinations when mediation falls short, feel free to contact orange county child custody lawyer. We will help you make the transition into your new life as seamless as possible. You may reach us at (714) 733-7066 or via email at jos@josfamilylaw.com. We look forward to discussing your Child Custody matter with you, and helping find the solution that best fits your particular situation.

In awarding or modifying Spousal Support, the Court considers and weighs the balance of hardships to each party. For example, in Marriage of Schu (2016) 6 CA5th 470, the Court denied Spousal Support to a wife based on a finding that her assets were sufficient to enable her to support herself. In that case, the Court also considered the fact that the wife had abused her children in deciding to deny support.

Another factor the Court considers in Spousal Support awards is the goal that the Supported Party is expected to become self -supporting in a reasonable period of time.

In so doing, the Court looks at:

  1. what might be required for the supported party to develop or acquire marketable skills
  2. the extent to which his or her earning capacity is or will be impaired by any periods of unemployment during the marriage to devote time to performing domestic duties.

Generally, the Supported Party is expected to acquire skills by seeking education or training in a field that is likely to lead to employment rendering reducing or erasing the need for future Spousal Support.

For example, in a marriage where both spouses worked, spousal support may be limited if the Supported spouse developed sufficient experience suitable for re-employment.

The Court can also deny Spousal Support based on a criminal conviction for abuse of the Spouse paying the support. Moreover, under Family Code Section 4324.5(a)(2)-(4), the victim spouse may even be awarded 100% of the community property interest in retirement and pension accounts.

In deciding whether to award or modify Spousal Support, the Court can consider any other facts the Court deems to be fair. For example:

  1. a supporting spouse’s financial obligation to third parties, such as disabled adult children that the supporting party is also supporting.
  2. The reduced standard of living during a time where one spouse completed their education in anticipation of a higher standard of living thereafter;
  3. The need for help with domestic chores and child-care while attempting to become self-supporting through education or training.
  4. Monetary gifts from a third party to the supported spouse;
