Encouraging Equal Time with Children
The California court system generally encourages equal time with children. In this situation, child custody arrangements would consist of joint physical and legal custody. In situations where the best interest of the children would indicate otherwise, shared parenting time may not be encouraged. These situations may involve domestic violence, drug use, or alcohol abuse. Physical custody refers to the home the children live in. Legal custody refers to decision-making. Decisions can involve education, religion, non-emergency medical treatment, and extracurricular activities. Child custody also plays a role in determining child support payments.
Child Custody Modification
Our firm also helps people who have concerns about modifying child custody arrangements. These requests for modification may arise because a parent is moving to another part of the state or country, or because the child requests it. We also represent those who wish to contest proposed modifications. Contact our firm today to arrange your consultation.
