What Does A California Judge Consider In A Custody Case?

There are two types of custody recognized in the state of California, as in many other states. When a parent has legal custody of a child, they are able to decide the life circumstances of the child, including aspects such as what they will do on a day-to-day basis, where they will go to school, what they will wear, what healthcare decisions will be made on their behalf, etc. 

When a parent has physical custody of a child, they are the parent with whom the child lives. Parents can share these types of custody equally, which is referred to as joint custody, or one parent can be responsible for both types of custody, or a parent can have no custody at all.

The paramount issue when deciding on custody is that the arrangement be in the best interest of the child. A judge will want to do everything in their power to make choices that will allow your child to thrive. In most cases, this means that a judge will do what they can to award each parent a fair share of custody since it’s important that children have time with both of their parents. 

However, if your ex-spouse has a history of violence or substance abuse or some other issue that would make them unfit for custody, our Canyon Lake custody lawyers can fight for you to have sole custody of your children. 

Other factors that have the potential to influence your custody arrangement include:

  • Which parent has more time to spend with the child
  • Which parent has the resources to provide a better quality of life for the child
  • Which parent the child feels most attached to
  • Which parent can provide the most consistency for the child

And more! Reach out to The Grey Legal Group to discuss specific concerns regarding the needs of your child.
