Help With Custody And Visitation Concerns

Family law disputes involving the custody of minor children can be highly emotional. If you face a dispute over child custody or visitation, you need the help of a lawyer who can 1) work effectively to achieve your legal goals and 2) provide caring and understanding support.

I am Jeff M. Bickerton of The Bickerton Law Firm, APLC, and I have provided family law legal help to hundreds of clients in Livermore, Pleasanton, Dublin and surrounding cities. My caring and compassionate representation of clients facing custody and visitation issues is illustrated by my Alameda County Bar Association Wiley Manuel pro bono services award and my years of service for the Alameda County Bar Association Lawyers in the Library program.

I provide aggressive and results-oriented legal help. Custody disputes are often highly negotiated. I have served as general counsel for an international corporation and have the skills to negotiate for your best interests and the best interests of your child. While my goal is to help my clients resolve their custody and visitation issues amicably, such as in mediation, I realize that this is not always possible. If it becomes necessary, I am ready to represent you in court.

Parents’ past behavior and parenting can affect judges’ custody and visitation decisions. I am experienced at conducting a careful and focused investigation to aggressively protect clients’ family law rights. For more information regarding my firm, family law and parenting time, please contact my office.

Child Custody Modifications And Parental Relocation

It may be possible to modify your child custody arrangement or parenting plan. If there have been a substantial change in circumstances, such as a new job that requires a different schedule or new special needs of your child, I can help you modify the court order.

If you or the other parent is planning to move away to another state or jurisdiction, you may need to get court approval. I represent clients seeking to relocate and parents contesting child relocation.
