California Family Lawyers Representing Family Law Clients in Loma Linda

Loma Linda has a population of 23,261. The city’s areas originally had two separate names – Mound City for the central area and Bryn Mawr for the eastern area. Loma Linda means “beautiful hill” in Spanish.

The city has quite a few accomplishments under its belt including:

  • The first human heart transplant
  • The first split-brain surgery
  • One of the three places in the world with the highest longevity, according to National Geographic Magazine
  • Many restaurants that feature a vegetarian menu to accommodate the large amount of Seventh Day Adventists in the city

There are a great many family oriented facilities in Loma Linda, including schools, sports fields and parks. However, in this town, just as in every other one in the U.S., family breakdown occurs.

Assisting Loma Linda Families with Custody Disputes

When a family is facing divorce, oftentimes the children are at the center of it. Both parents may want custody of the children, with one or both parents frequently wanting full custody.

Should this happen to you, it is important to secure the services of an experienced family law attorney. Joyce Holcomb has been practicing family law for almost a decade in the San Bernardino area, including Loma Linda. She understands the high tension and emotions that surround custody disputes, and she delivers her legal advice with care and compassion.

Loma Linda Child Custody

Child custody disputes encompass a wide variety of issues including:

  • Custody arrangements
  • Visitation rights
  • Modification of custody and/or visitation rights
  • Child custody order enforcement
  • Grandparent visitation
  • Decisions relating to the upbringing of children
  • Juvenile delinquency and dependency proceedings

Child custody disputes can be resolved in two ways, through mediation or through litigation.

Mediation is the optimal way to solve a child custody dispute if the parents have an amicable relationship. Mediation allows the parties to set aside any hostility and anger, encouraging the parties to agree on things involving their children. Mediation is predictable, calm, and allows parents to remain in charge of the decisions affecting their children.

If a custody dispute is highly contentious and parents are unable to work together, litigation may be pursued. While more stressful and unpredictable, a competent and experienced child custody attorney can make the custody litigation process more understandable while ensuring that the children and the parental rights involved are protected.
