Visitation rights for California grandparents

A separation or divorce can create strain in more relationships than just the one that exists between the dividing parties. It can cause tensions between parents and children, between spouses and their parents, and even between grandparents and their beloved grandchildren. In order to protect the important bonds that they have built between themselves and their grandkids some California grandparents seek to secure visitation time with the children they love.

Maintaining legal custody after a split

Ask a California parent who has gone through a divorce or separation from their spouse or partner about the most stressful part of their uncoupling, and they may likely respond about protecting their kids from hurt and harm. Parents often worry that their children will be upset, damaged or otherwise affected by their relationship changes, but there are important steps parents can take to minimize the impact of divorce or separation on their kids. Those steps include remaining advocates for their children despite their marital dissolutions through the maintenance of their legal custody rights.

Best interests of the child is an important custody consideration

California parents may often take note of just how different their kids are from those of others, and parents who have more than one child may even notice these variations between their own offspring. From an early age, children define themselves in particular ways and may have very different paths to approaching life. Though all children have the same basic requirements in terms of food, shelter and other necessary provisions, each may have different individual needs that they necessitate in order to thrive.

A protective order can be sought for many reasons in CA

When you decide it is time to leave an abusive relationship, you may wonder if you need to take steps to protect yourself and your children. You might have heard that you cannot seek protection if the abuse was not physical. Spousal abuse takes many forms, and you may be encouraged to learn that you can seek an order of protection for reasons other than bodily harm in California.

Closing distances with virtual visitation

It can be hard for a parent to imagine a life where they do not get to hug their child every night before bed. However, for families affected by divorce, custody agreements and orders can force parents to live separately from their kids for days, weeks or even months at a time. If California parents share physical custody of their kids, then they may have to get creative with their schedules to ensure that their children spend sufficient time in the homes of each parent.

Helping you resolve custody matters during and after divorce

Many things are on the minds of California couples divorcing. While they might be focused on their post-divorce life and how it will allow them to be in a better situation, spouses will need to focus on the matter at hand. When children are involved in a divorce, this means developing a custody order that works for both parents. However, because neither parent wants to lose time with their child, it is likely that this issue will present various disputes.

Options for physical custody and visitation after a divorce

One of the most challenging aspects of ending a marriage for a California parents is coming to grips with the fact that they may not get to see their child each and every day. If the divorcing parties share children then they will, as a part of their legal proceedings, have to decide where the child will live and how they will divide the child's time between their households. When parents cannot work these details out, the courts will intervene and seek to protect the best interests of the children through court-provided orders. But in many cases, parents are the best judges of how their children's physical needs should be met.

Make your child's needs a legal priority in 2018

Recently, this Seal Beach-based family law blog focused on parenting time interference. This situation is a serious matter that hinders the relationship between a child and one of their parents due to the conduct of the child's other parent. A parent who interferes with the bond between their child and their former partner may do so through ignoring a custodial schedule that they share with their ex or going out of their way to make it difficult for their ex to be with their shared child.

Recognize the signs of parenting time interference

Child custody arrangements can be difficult legal matters for parents. In most cases a parent must part with their child for some amount of time, whether they share their child's physical custody with their former partner or if their former partner has visitation time with the child. The absence of their children from their lives can be difficult for Seal Beach parents to accept.
