Dedicated To Your Child's Well-Being

As a concerned parent, you want to protect your child's best interests throughout your divorce and after proceedings have ended. Our legal team at Tamera C. Trindade, CFLS* Attorney and Counselor at Law, has the compassion and insight required to help you safeguard your child's welfare.

Our managing partner, Tamera C. Trindade, has led thousands of Shasta County parents through the divorce process over the course of her career. At our Redding firm, we strive to minimize the impact family law conflicts have on children. We take a child-centered approach when we advise you on your custody and visitation options to ensure that your parenting plan meets your child's needs.

By Your Side During Custody Negotiations

In California, custody agreements assign parenting and legal responsibilities to each parent. Child custody can refer to:

  • Physical custody of the child that identifies where the child will live
  • Legal custody of the child that establishes the decisions each parent is authorized to make regarding the child's growth and development
  • Sole custody that gives one parent complete control over legal custody, physical custody or both
  • Joint custody in which parents share custody

Ms. Trindade knows how to negotiate favorable custody and visitation terms during sessions. If you and your estranged spouse are unable to find an out-of-court solution, she advocates clients in court.

Designing Parenting Plans With Your Child In Mind

Well-written parenting plans help to reduce custody conflicts between parents and set realistic guidelines for raising children after divorce. Ms. Trindade tailors plans that promote your parental rights and also encourages children to develop strong ties with both parents.

Parenting plans should address timesharing concerns that include:

  • Transportation between visitation sessions
  • Vacation and holiday schedules
  • Video visitation

This agreement should also identify each parent's decision-making responsibilities for matters that include:

  • Health care
  • Schooling
  • Extracurricular activities

In addition to drafting plans and securing the terms of the agreement, our firm represents parents seeking modifications or enforcement orders. When your life changes after your divorce, it is crucial that the terms of your parenting plan adjust to reflect these new circumstances.
