Legal Advice for Newport Beach Child Custody Cases
Every case is different. This is why you need to understand how child custody cases work, and the considerations that influence the final judgment of the court.
California has two major child custody types. These include:
- Physical custody – custody deciding which parent the child(ren) live with primarily. This could be joint/shared custody, where custody is awarded to both parents with favorable arrangements. It could also be sole custody, where one person gets the children fully, while the other one gets visitation rights or a restraining order, depending on whether they’re dangerous or not.
- Legal custody – this could be joint or sole legal custody. Joint legal custody means both parents can make legal decisions about their child(ren). Sole legal custody means only one parent can make those crucial decisions.
What Do the Courts Consider When Making Their Judgments?
Parents with favorable outcomes are usually those with the best representation. However, excellent representation isn’t enough. There’s a lot more to it. The courts are often careful about awarding custody. So, they’ll rigorously weigh all the evidence provided by the various legal teams, including input by employees of Child Protection Services, if any.
The courts are likely to consider the age(s) of your ward(s). Children older than 12 may have a say in the decision. They’ll also consider your current living situation; if the environment is good enough to raise kids in, the parents’ ability to provide for the children, how much time a parent has to spend with the children and care for them, as well as the parents’ state of physical, emotional, psychological, and mental well-being.
There are many factors involved, and all of them represent “points” that will make up the bulk of the court’s ruling. You want to make sure that these factors favor you.
