Divorce & Child Custody Legal Services


"Never Lost Sight of the Goal"


"Going through my custody battle was very emotionally trying. I was lucky to have chosen Fischer & Van Thiel to help me protect the most valuable asset of my life...my children. At the initial interview, I was informed that the children and their safety were a primary concern of the firm. While I like this, I was concerned when they said you had to trust your attorney because their wee time when they may have to give you advice that is not what you want to hear. As we progressed through the process I came to understand what they were referring to as there were many times when it became apparent that they knew the law and how the judge would respond. They were very good at telling me, even before the hearing, how the ruling was going to go and what to expect. I am thankful for the help I received and would encourage others in need of help to talk to these attorneys.."

- Mithila Parker, San Marcos, CA

"Terrific Divorce & Child Support Lawyer!"

"Thank You for Everything!"


"I wanted to take a moment and thank Mike Fischer my divorce attorney for all that he did for me. He made a very difficult time much easier. We ended up using divorce mediation instead of going at each other in court and we are happy we did! It was much more civil and our focus was on our children. Thank you for everything you have done and I would highly recommend you to anyone who is considering divorce."
