In California, either one parent can have custody of children or both parents can share custody. Courts make the final decision about custody and visitation, but they will also usually approve a competent parenting plan that is agreed to by both parents. There are two types of child custody orders: legal and physical. Legal Custody Legal custody concerns how parents will divide responsibilities and how major decisions about a child’s health, education, and welfare will be made.
Legal custody can be joint, having both parents share the right and responsibility to make important decisions, or sole, having one parent take full responsibility for major decisions. Physical Custody Physical custody concerns where children will live. Joint custody will mean that a child will live with both parents, and sole or primary custody means that a child will live with one parent a majority of the time while also visiting the other parent. Joint physical custody is not a stringent 50 / 50 split, but rather a more fluid arrangement that best suits the entire family.
When determining child custody, a court will consider factors that affect the best interest of the child. These include: Age of the child Health of the child Emotional ties between children and parents Abilities of parents to care for the child Any history of family violence or substance abuse The child’s ties to school, home, and community If you have kids, determining custody and visitation can be one of the most difficult parts of a divorce. The court prefers that both parents work out custody and visitation issues, and will normally require you to go to mediation before a judge will make an order regarding child custody.
The court always views custody and visitation questions from the aspect of what is best for the child, not who is the most deserving parent. It is usually far better for the children involved to have the parents work out an agreement than to have a court determine custody and visitation.
