Parenting Plan Law
There may be no other area of family law that is more contentious than child custody. Under California law, any custody arrangement or parenting plan must serve the best interests of the child. It is important to ensure, however, that your rights are not forgotten in the process. Be sure that you have an experienced child custody lawyer in Redding who will work to see that your rights are fully considered.
At The Law Office of Rupert Corkill, we provide comprehensive custody services to clients across Northern California. We have extensive experience helping clients develop sound parenting plans and seeking modifications of child custody orders should circumstances change. We understand what is at stake in these cases, and work diligently to ensure that you continue to have a meaningful presence in your children's lives after the divorce has been finalized.
Seeking an Agreement That Works for Everyone
There are many complex issues that need to be addressed in any parenting plan, including where the children will live and go to school, which parents have decision-making authority for the children, visitation schedules, and many other considerations. As your attorney, Rupert Corkill will work to map out the best strategy based on your unique circumstances.
It is important for parents to reach an agreement on a parenting plan whenever possible. If they can't, the court will determine one for them. Once the court has entered an order, a formal request for modification must be made to get it changed. Mr. Corkill has been successful at helping clients resolve their disputes and developing parenting plans that everyone can agree to.

Child Custody Quick Facts
What are the rules about child custody in California?
Like all states, California courts begin with a presumption that it's best for a child to have frequent and continuing contact with both parents after a divorce. If possible, judges want to support joint custody arrangements. However, the exact nature of the time-share will be determined by the children's best interests.
