Were you denied child custody or visitation rights?

Riverside Child Custody Lawyer

Understanding California Custody Laws

Fighting for custody is one of the most challenging areas of family law. It is always in the best interest of the child or children if the parents can achieve an amicable custody agreement for themselves and the minor(s). If the couple cannot reach a decision, the courts will impose its arrangement on the parties if a custody action is filed.

How Is Custody Determined?

There are many factors a judge looks at when deciding custody, beginning with the best interests of the child. It is up to the judge to use his or her discretion to determine what will best benefit the child and award custody accordingly.

There are four basic types of child custody:

  • Legal – The right and obligation to make major decisions regarding medical, education, day-to-day activities.
  • Physical – The right of the parent to have the child live with him or her.
  • Sole – Only the custodial parent has physical and legal custody; the non-custodial parent has visitation rights.
  • Joint – The parents share the decision-making responsibilities; the children have continuing contact and involvement with both parents. This is seen as ideal.
