Helping Clients With Complex Child Custody Matters

Legal disagreements over child custody are highly personal. Although child visitation issues often arise during divorce, reaching agreement over visitation and parenting plans is much more about understanding the relationships between you, your former spouse and other members of your family than it is about money or property.

Free Initial Consultation On Child Custody And Visitation

Finding a lawyer who understands you and your goals gives you a much better chance to establish the custody and child support arrangements you want. I am Judy L. Ford Attorney at Law. With a professional background in nursing, I have the instincts to guide you through the unfamiliar child custody legal process with sensitivity.

I am a solo practitioner so you will always deal directly with me, never an inexperienced lawyer or paralegal who might be unfamiliar with the fine detail of your case. Because it is such a big decision, I am happy to meet with you for a free 30-minute consultation to help you decide if you would like me to represent you.

What Happens If I Cannot Agree The Parenting Plan?

I represent clients across Sacramento and Placer counties where there is a legal obligation to attend mediation. If you are unable to agree a parenting plan, a proposed plan is presented to court. It is my job to persuade the court that your proposals are in the best interests of your child.

Getting The Right Support Order

Child support is a parental obligation in California. I act for men and women who pay or who are in receipt of support. The legal formula used to calculate the amount of money payable is complex, and part of my job is to scrutinize the figures so that the level of payments are set fairly.

I also help clients enforce child support orders and seek modification of orders when one parent's circumstances substantially change.
