Certain factors carry significant weight in child custody cases

During family law proceedings, a California court may be required to decide where a child should reside and which of their parents should have custody of them. While in some cases courts determine that the children will benefit from the joint physical custodianship of both of their parents, in other cases courts must choose between the children's parents based on the best information they can gather. This post will touch on a few of the factors courts may evaluate when deciding physical custody matters.

Grandparents' rights to visitation with their grandchildren

When problems arise between the parents of California children, the issues related to their strife can affect relationships throughout the families. Most obviously the children can suffer when their parents struggle to remain civil. In addition, other relationships, such as those between the parents, the kids and their extended family members can also endure damage when marriages break down.

What is legal custody and can it be shared jointly in California?

There are two forms of child custody that California parents must address when they choose to end their marital relationship through divorce. The first is physical custody. This form of child custody involves where the child will reside and if the child will have visitation time with the parent who does not have physical custody of them. The second type of child custody is legal custody. This form of child custody is often shared between divorced parents, so that each may have an active voice in the decision-making processes of raising their child.
