Child Custody Archives

Dads can increase chances of winning full child custody

Getting a divorce in California is understandably difficult for the spouses going through the process, but it can be just as emotionally challenging for their children as well. This is particularly true if the parents cannot agree on who will have custody of the children. Sadly for dads, court child custody decisions are typically made in favor of the mother, not the father.

Moving away can complicate divorce child custody arrangement

Following a divorce involving children in California, moving is not a simple affair. California law seeks to safeguard parent-child relationships and parental rights, and moving can have a major impact on such relationships and rights. For this reason, before you can move with your child after a divorce, you must provide sufficient justification to get the relocation approved by the court.

Child custody can be tricky to navigate

Divorce can be a challenging ordeal for children, just as it is for their parents. About half of children who were born in the 1990s may face their parents' marital split-up. Fortunately, a few tips may help parents in California who are dealing with matters related to child custody to make the divorce process easier for their children to handle.

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.

Child custody a common issue in California divorce proceedings

While money appears to be the catalyst for many of the problems that California couples face, it is only one part of the problem when the couple decides that it is time to move on. There are many issues that need to be addressed when the couple decides to divorce. In addition to their financial concerns, they will also need to address how their personal property will be divided and, if they are parents, child custody arrangements.

Putting aside anger to seek the best interests of the child

Sometimes the hardest part of co-parenting after divorce is taking the high road. Despite whatever may have attracted two people in the first place, divorce can leave a California couple bitter and mistrustful. Nevertheless, when children are involved, maintaining a dignified and respectful demeanor with one's co-parent is in the best interests of the child. When conflicts arise, it is often one parent setting a positive tone who can make the difference in the resolution.

Sharing child custody in a positive and productive way

For many California families, protecting the best interests of the children is the top priority for both parents during a divorce. For this reason, many parents find that sharing child custody through a co-parenting agreement can preserve parent/child relationships and make post-divorce life easier for the youngest members of the family. Co-parenting is not the best decision for every family, but it may provide significant benefits for many.

California families and holiday child custody concerns

Across California, children look forward to the holiday season. This is their opportunity to get a couple of weeks off from school, hopefully receive that dreamed-of toy and spend time with friends and family. However, for some divorced or separated families, the holidays can be stressful as child custody issues and individual desires collide.

Which type of child custody is best in a given situation?

Perhaps one of the areas of divorce that causes the most concern for all involved revolves around the children. While both parents may want what they consider is best for the child, the California court system will have the ultimate say on child custody issues. With this in mind, it is helpful to have an idea of some of the different types of child custody that may come into play.

Long after the divorce papers have been signed, many California parents find that they must still find a way to work with their former marital partner. The primary reason for this continued relationship is the children. Often, each parent has his or her own ideas about what is best for the children. When these ideas do not match, there can often be child custody issues.
