Child Custody Representation Focused On Your Needs

MotherSonIn addition to her extensive experience and an advanced degree, Hannah Sims, the founder of our law firm, is a mother of two children who herself has gone through a divorce. That personal point of view and in-depth insight are valuable assets if you are looking for a compassionate advocate.

Divorce proceedings are legally complex and rife with emotion. There are no easy strategies or solutions. At the Sims Family Law Group, APC, we focus on the best interests of the children and the protection of parents' legal rights in child custody cases.

Putting your children's well-being first is vital in getting them through a difficult and sometimes traumatic process. For help, contact us online or call 510-250-7834.

Providing Compassion and Empathy

We take personal responsibility to ensure that steps taken in your child custody case remain focused on your children's well-being and best interests. As parents ourselves, we understand the importance of shielding your child from the stresses of a breakup. We also understand that in most cases, a child's best interests are served by frequent and continuing contact with the mother and the father. Divorce is traumatic enough for children without the added burden of parents engaged in a bitter dispute. Adding a parent's or parents' mental illness, substance abuse or criminal histories to a child custody battle only increases the need for an attorney who will put your children's best interests first and foremost.

Our attorneys are skilled at resolving custody issues and have a reputation for unparalleled success in the courtroom. While we are committed to zealous advocacy, we also pride ourselves on never walking into a courtroom unless we are truly working in the best interests of the children. This may result in some heart-to-heart discussions with our clients about their goals and priorities. We are not afraid to have these kinds of conversations and indeed, we pride ourselves on our commitment to the children in our practice and our reputation as serious, skilled and straight-shooting attorneys. Additionally, founding attorney Hannah Sims is a Certified Family Law Specialist.

As a team, we have represented clients in multiple move-away cases, both for and against the move, and we continuously update ourselves on the governing law so that we can best achieve your goals. We realize that the child is the most important player in any family law case and we work hard to keep that our primary focus.

Unmarried couples seeking child custody agreements face unique challenges that require the experience of our Alameda County paternity attorneys. A biological father acknowledges his responsibility and wants quality time with his child. A mother resists. Legal help is vital.

Take action now to protect both your rights and focus on the best outcome for your children.
