Child Custody

 Our aggressive custody attorneys will strive to ensure we achieve our client’s goals.

Child Custody Laws

In California, the state uses terms involving legal custody, physical custody and visitation. When parents are unable to agree on who will have custody of the child, the court may intervene and make a decision based on the best interests of the child. Determining what the best interests of the child are can vary depending on child custody laws of the state.

Sole Custody

There is sole custody in two regards – sole legal custody and sole physical custody. A judge will grant custody or visitation rights after considering everything involved; including the child’s health, safety and welfare, as well as any history of abuse by one parent. Sole legal custody means one parent has the right to make decisions relating to the health, education and welfare of the children. Sole physical custody means the child lives with one parent and the other parent has visitation.

Joint Legal Custody

When parents divorce, most experts believe the best solution for the children is for the parents to reach an agreement on who will take care of what parenting responsibilities. However, some parents are unable to agree on custody or visitation and a judge will make the decision for them.
