At Chung & Ignacio, LLP, we have an in-depth understanding of the laws and various matters concerning child custody rulings. When you come to us, we can assess your situation and helping you set realistic goals. From there, we can begin working on a viable custody solution. We take every aspect of your situation into consideration, including child support and spousal support matters.

What Type of Custody Can Be Awarded?

The court can award the following types of custody:

  • Physical custody: This refers to where a child will live and with whom they will spend a majority of their time.
  • Legal custody: This refers to who will maintain the legal right to make decisions regarding the child’s education, well-being, and health.

In California, if one parent is given sole custody, another must be given visitation rights. This will be set out in a visitation plan that outlines the days, the amount of time, any limitations, and other specifics of the visits. In some cases, holidays may be split between parents to ensure the child has enough time with both parents.

Factors the Court Uses for Deciding Custody

Every child and family is different, which means the court may look at a wide range of factors when trying to determine the best possible custody situation for the child. At the end of the day, the judge will go off what they believe to be the child’s best interests. This is why it is important you have counsel on your side at this time.

Some of the main factors that will be reviewed include:

  • The age and sex of the child
  • Who is seen as the “primary parent”
  • The overall health needs of the child
  • The free time and occupation of each parent
  • The past record of each parent
  • Educational and special needs of the child
  • Living situation of each parent
