Protecting Your Relationship With Your Child In Child Custody Matters

Few issues in family law carry the potential for creating as much conflict as those related to child custody and visitation. Every parent has strong ideas about how to raise their child, and no parent wants anything to interfere with that relationship. Whether as part of a divorce or as a stand-alone family law issue, child custody determinations can be emotionally difficult and volatile.

Securing experienced representation can provide you with the strongest opportunity to avoid unnecessary conflict and protect your relationship with your child.

When possible, California's family courts make every effort to provide both parents a role in their child's life. This often means that parents will share legal and physical child custody. That being said, child custody determinations are always made with the best interests of a child in mind.

Factors the courts may consider when making decisions related to custody and visitation include:

  • A child's age
  • A child's health (emotional and physical)
  • A child's ties to the community in which he or she lives
  • A child's ties to each parent
  • Each parent's ability and desire to care for a child
  • Existence of history of domestic or substance abuse by either parent
