How Do I Prepare For Custody?

If you have children with your spouse and are seeking a divorce, child custody and visitation rights are something you need to prepare for. Divorce can be a difficult adjustment for children, which is why custody terms need to be dealt with carefully. While California law generally prefers to award joint legal custody where both parents can make legal decisions regarding their child/children, there are other types of custody that to be aware of.

What Kinds of Custody Are There?

We help our clients understand the different types of custody and visitation rights, including:

  • Sole custody, in which one parent is awarded both physical and legal custody
  • Joint custody, in which both parents share equal time with, and equal custody of, the child
  • Legal custody, in which the parent can make legal decisions regarding the health, education, religion, and other important matters of the child
  • Physical custody, in which custody is awarded to the parent with whom the child will live

For a parent to gain sole custody, you must be able to prove to the courts that this arrangement is in the child's best interests. The courts will evaluate your current relationship with the child, how stable the home environment is, if the other parent has not been able to meet the child's needs, as examples.

What Are My Visitation Rights?

In addition to child custody rights, visitation rights might also need to be outlined, such as how much time a non-custodial parent can spend with the child, where that visitation can take place, and whether that visitation needs to be supervised.

Child custody should always be about what's best for the child or children involved. Custody battles can be time-consuming and stressful, especially when the parties cannot come to an agreement on their own. If you are in a tough spot and need the intervention of a strong legal team, Holmes & Holmes is the firm for you.
