Which Parent Will Get Custody of the Child?

Whether the household is being divided because of divorce or legal separation, or whether the parents were never married, the most pressing question is often, “Who will get custody of the child?” In California, the family courts take the best interests of the child into account when making custody determinations. As a Certified Family Law Specialist, Santa Ana Child Custody Lawyer Yolanda Torres will fight for you and your family to obtain a child custody agreement which maintains the status quo for the children while keeping them in a safe, structured environment. It is important to note that the law does not identify a preference for the mother or for the father when determining child custody. The court favors situations that offer the child frequent and continuous contact with both parents, as long as it is in the child’s best interest.

Legal Custody, Physical Custody, Joint Custody in California

When making custody determinations, the court will examine each parent’s ability to provide the child with a stable, nurturing environment. Santa Ana Child Custody Attorney and Family Law Lawyer Yolanda Torres has a good rapport with local judicial officers, and she will tailor her representation to the unique aspects of your situation. In California, custody awarded to one parent is referred to as sole custody. Custody that is shared between both of the parents is called joint custody. There are two types of custody involved: Legal Custody allows the parent to manage decisions which affect the health and well-being of minor children. These decisions involve the child’s education, medical care, and religious activities. Sole legal custody gives one parent the authority to make decisions for the child, while joint legal custody allows the parents to have equal decision-making responsibility. Physical Custody identifies the child’s living arrangements. With sole physical custody, the non-custodial parent has the child during scheduled visits. Joint physical custody allows the child to spend a significant amount of time with both parents. The Law Firm of Yolanda V. Torres frequently represents firefighters, police officers, teachers, and others in the public sector who have demanding occupations. We are observant of these schedules, and we are committed to obtaining the best custodial arrangement for our clients.
