Child Custody Archives

Child custody court considers numerous factors in its decision

Child custody cases in California are generally guided by the principle of the "best interests of the children," which is the universal test used by state courts throughout the country. More specifically, however, child custody courts will look to a number of factors to determine custody in a contested case. The courts will try to find the factors that are important to the facts of the case to bring about a decision that reflects the best interests of the children.

Child custody issue remains unresolved in celebrity's divorce

In California, as in every other state, the facts of each divorce are unique to the particular parties and circumstances. Some divorces do not deal with child custody because there are no children, the children are adults or the parties have already established a resolution of those issues. Where the matter does require the resolution of conflicts over child custody, the divorcing parties must discuss their goals and aspirations regarding the children in detail with their respective family law attorneys.

Co-parenting in California divorces

With many divorcing couples, custody of their children tends to become one of the biggest issues. Both parents may seek full custody, either out of genuine desire to be with the kids or, all too often, a desire to feel like they've "won" in the divorce. This is a misguided approach to child custody. Ideally, both you and your spouse will understand the importance of an ongoing relationship with the other and do your best to facilitate a healthy situation.
