Learn More About Your Child Custody Options
There are a variety of different child custody arrangements that may work
for your family. When divorcing, parents should be concerned with both
physical custody and legal custody. Physical custody concerns who actually
has the children and where they sleep at night. Legal custody concerns
who makes decisions for the children, such as where they'll go to
school, what medical treatment they can receive, and more.
You can choose from the following arrangements for child custody:
When parents choose this arrangement, they are agreeing to share time
with the child. This normally only works if the parents live relatively
close to each other and if they are on amicable terms. One parent may
have the children for the first half the week, and the other parent may
have them for the second half. The courts are flexible on arrangements.
Maybe you want to alternate week to week, or maybe you would like to divide
time in an unequal way. You will want to talk with an attorney to see
what is feasible for you.
If one parent is given full custody of the children, it is considered
sole custody. Sole custody can be both legal and physical or may be one
or the other. In some cases, one parent may have sole physical custody
while the other parent has shared legal custody. You will want to talk
over these options with your attorney and decide which is in the best
interests of your child.
How My Firm Can Protect Your Child's Best Interests
The courts don't want to just place the children with the parent who
provides the best argument for custody. In fact, the courts aren't
truly concerned with parents at all in a contested child custody case.
They simply want to make a decision in the best interests of the child.
Some of the aspects the courts consider include:
- The parental capabilities of each parent
- The age of each parent
- Each parent's desire to allow the child to have a relationship with
the other parent
- The health of each parent
- Each parent's habits (alcoholism, smoking, drugs)
- The child's preference (if he or she is over the age of 12)
- How a decision would disrupt the child's current circumstances
Understanding Child Support Laws in California
When one parent is given custody of the children, the other parent may
be obligated to pay for child-related expenses in order to fulfill his
or her responsibilities as a father or mother. Normally, the courts will
obligate the higher earning spouse to make these payments, specifically
in situations in which one parent doesn't work. The courts will calculate
child support based on income and the standard of living that the children
enjoyed prior to the divorce.
