Petaluma Custody Lawyer

Dedicated Custody Attorney Protecting Petaluma Families

Cases involving custody are always hard—and hard-fought. In any divorce, there is nothing more important than protecting your loved ones. Whether you are a mother, father, or grandparent, Jeffrey Zimmerman will work tirelessly to defend your rights and the well-being of your children throughout your divorce.

Fathers’ & Mothers’ Rights in California

In California, both parents have an equal ability to seek custody and visitation. Though custody agreements tended to strongly favor mothers in the past, this is no longer the case. Today, every custody case is determined by each parent’s relationship with and ability to provide care for the child.

Ultimately, every court will consider custody claims on the basis of the child’s best interests. Whenever possible, judges prefer to award joint custody. Zimmerman Law Offices will demonstrate the importance of your relationship to your child to bolster your custody claim.

Grandparents’ Rights

Many people don’t realize that grandparents have rights, too. Whether you are a grandparent pursuing custody of a child in your care or are trying to establish legal rights to visitation, understanding the laws that govern your rights are key to making your case effectively. We’ll give you the representation and guidance you need to assert your rights to a relationship with your grandchildren.
