Are you going through a divorce and facing a child custody battle in California? It is helpful to be aware of the factors considered when creating a child custody order in the state of California. The court will ultimately make decisions according to what they see as in the best interest of the child. In order to reach the end result that you would like, it is important to show custody with you as the best option for the children. There are successful ways of doing so without jeopardizing your case and I can help. First, you need to know what the court will look into, here are some factors:
  • The relationship between the children and each of the parents
  • The health of the children and the parents
  • The age of the children
  • The ability of each parent to provide for the children; emotionally, financially, medically and physically
  • The attachment of the children to their school, community, church, etc.
  • Any allegations of neglect or abuse
In the end, courts often decide on custody of one parent with visitation schedules for the other parent. It is beneficial to have involvement from both parents in a child's life and the court takes than into consideration. Cases where one parent is seen as unfit or has a history of abuse or neglect will generally not be seen as the best interest of the children. In order to best fight for custody of your children, you need to show that you are fit to have custody and can provide for your children in all areas of life. Also, showing cooperation and a willingness to support a relationship between your children and the other parent is important.
