Child custody case involves several essential aspects

A marital split-up is naturally tough on the spouses who have decided to go their separate ways. However, it can be just as difficult for the children who are witnessing it and are a part of it. A child custody case in California has several important aspects that affect both the parents and the children.

First, in years past, the divorce courts in California strongly favored mothers when making custody decisions. However, in recent years, that has changed, with more fathers being granted custody. The court in a child custody case will research both parents' fitness before arriving at a final decision.

In addition, several degrees of custody exist. Parents who end up not getting primary custody may still get closer to 50/50 now than they did in the past. This ensures that the child's relationships with both parents remain strong and intact in the future.

During a child custody battle, a parent's biggest fear naturally may be losing custody and/or time with the children. However, an attorney can help to make sure that one's wishes are upheld at the negotiation table. During informal negotiations, both spouses can work together to form a parenting agreement that is satisfactory for both parties long term. Oftentimes, parents find that their areas of agreement are often greater than their areas of disagreement. In addition to focusing on what custody arrangement is mutually beneficial for the parents, however, the best interests of the children in terms of whether they will thrive the best are also important to consider in California.
