San Bernardino, California, Child Custody Specialist

Divorces that involve child custody often become hostile when spouses and attorneys on both sides allow resentment and emotions to rule their decisions. Under California law, the courts are required to rule in favor of what is best for the children, but that doesn't mean that some parents won't try to put their own needs first.

We know the professional resources that help you reach a co-parenting plan

At Haslam & Thorne, LLP, we believe that negotiated co-parenting agreements are almost always the best solution to disputes involving child custody and visitation. Working together with the other parent and their lawyer, we bring in professionals such as child welfare specialists when necessary to help you find the best solution.

Our family law experience and training in mediation and collaborative law make a difference. We know what professional resources are available and how to help you get the child custody resolution that will keep your child's best interests at the core of the agreement.

Litigation Experience: When a Co-Parenting Agreement can't be Reached

We believe that a prolonged custody battle must be avoided, if possible. We also know, though, that an acceptable co-parenting plan can't always be negotiated out-of-court. Sometimes, the issues are so important to either parent that a judge must make the decision. We have extensive trial experience and know how to investigate the issues that the courts will consider most seriously.
