Child Custody Cases in California
Child custody matters are determined by the courts with the safety and welfare of the child or children involved as a primary consideration. Any history of domestic violence by a parent will impact this decision by the courts. Unless it would not be in the best interests of the child or children, the courts will favor frequent and continued contact with both parents and shared parenting.
Child custody arrangements include joint custody, such as joint legal and physical custody, sole custody as physical and legal custody, as well as nonparent custody where someone other than the parents will have responsibility for the care of the child or children. In nonparent custody, grandparents' rights may be considered by the courts. In these cases, the parents will usually have reasonable rights of visitation.
In deciding child custody and visitation the courts will consider many factors including the health, safety, and welfare of the child, any history of physical abuse or drug or alcohol abuse, stability of the environment, separation of siblings, preferences of the children if old enough to have an opinion, and more. Attorney Christine Thielo is very experienced in these matters and will give you the guidance and advice you need.
