What is Child Custody and Visitation?

Before parents can address the issues of custody and visitation of their minor children, there must be an underlying action. If the parents are married or in a domestic partnership, one of the parents must file for:

  • Divorce
  • Legal separation
  • Annulment

If the parents are unmarried either parent must file an action to establish the parental relationship.

Child Custody Cases in California

Child custody can be one of the most difficult and divisive issues for the parents and children involved. If you have a child custody, visitation or modification matter which needs resolving, we urge you to our office to meet and discuss your case with Child Custody Attorney Christine D. Thielo to get the experienced and dedicated legal help you need. Our office represents clients in Upland and throughout the surrounding areas of western San Bernardino County and eastern Los Angeles County.

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 non parent custody where someone other than the parents will have responsibility for the care of the child or children. In non parent 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. Custody and Child Support Modifications are often necessary after an order has been made and the circumstances of one or both parties has changed. It is wise to enlist the help of an attorney who is experienced in these matters to help you resolve them quickly and fairly. Attorney Christine Thielo will give you the guidance and advice you need.
