Testimonials from former Child Custody clients:
Family Law Attorney Christine D. Thielo represented me in a child custody case. Attorney Thielo was both professional and compassionate. Most importantly Attorney Thielo had thorough knowledge of my case and it showed during court appearances. During court appearances I was always confident that attorney Thielo would be well prepared to represent me before the court. Furthermore, Attorney Thielo always answered my questions, responded to emails promptly and always found the time to guide me or provide professional advice throughout the court process. For those who are unfamiliar in dealing with lawyers, getting a response or a returned phone call from a law office without an appointment once you have paid your retainer is nearly impossible. I can attest that Attorney Thielo and her staff addressed every question and reassured me through the entire process until the end. I found Attorney Thielo to be someone of high character. I am beyond grateful for her outstanding service during the most difficult time of my life.

Child custody matters are determined by the courts with the safety and welfare of the child or children involved as a primary consideration. Any history of domestic violence by a parent will impact this decision by the courts. Unless it would not be in the best interests of the child or children, the courts will favor frequent and continued contact with both parents and shared parenting.
Child custody arrangements include joint custody, such as joint legal and physical custody, sole custody as physical and legal custody, as well as nonparent custody where someone other than the parents will have responsibility for the care of the child or children. In nonparent custody, grandparents' rights may be considered by the courts. In these cases, the parents will usually have reasonable rights of visitation.
In deciding child custody and visitation the courts will consider many factors including the health, safety, and welfare of the child, any history of physical abuse or drug or alcohol abuse, stability of the environment, separation of siblings, preferences of the children if old enough to have an opinion, and more. Claremont Child Custody Attorney Christine Thielo is experienced in these matters and will give you the guidance and advice you need.
