What Does Custody In California Entail?

If two parents cannot agree on the terms of their custody arrangement, a California judge or court will make the important decisions regarding custody while taking into consideration what’s in the best interest of the child or children.

There are two different types of custody in California: legal and physical. Legal custody has to do with which parent will make important decisions on behalf of the children when it comes to matters like education, religion, and healthcare. Physical custody has to do with which parent the children will primarily reside with.

While California courts prefer a joint custody arrangement, one parent could have legal or physical custody (or both) solely. This would be particularly appropriate if one parent had a history of substance abuse, neglect, or domestic violence. If that describes your family dynamic, our experienced Isleton custody attorney knows how to appropriately advocate for a result that will keep you and your children safe.

Factors You’ll Need To Consider

During a life transition as big as divorce, there are a number of considerations to keep in mind, especially when it comes to matters relating to your children. Some of these considerations include, but are not limited to, the following:

  • Where/with whom you want your children to live
  • Who your children will spend holidays with
  • Where your children will go to school
  • When the other parent can see the children (if one parent has sole custody)
  • How often/how much time you’ll each spend with the children if sharing custody
  • Which parent will claim the children for tax purposes
  • Which parent will provide health insurance
  • And more!

Factors The Judge Considers

In order to make a decision regarding custody, a judge may consider one or more of the following factors:

  • The age of the children
  • The children’s preferences (if old enough to express them)
  • The health of the children
  • The emotional ties between both parents and the children
  • The ability of the parents to care for the children emotionally, physically, and financially
  • Each parent’s living situation
  • Extended family ties
  • The children’s ties to their community (at school, with friends, etc.)
  • And other factors.
