How Is Custody Determined?

In general, the court does whatever possible to keep both parents involved in the child's life. This may mean joint custody or sole custody with visitation rights. Fortunately, our experience in custody and juvenile proceedings has given us insight into the challenges of protecting children's needs.

If you and the other parent cannot come to an agreement about child custody, the decision will be left to the court. When making decisions about child custody, the court uses guidelines outlined in the California Family Code, section 3011, as well as the child's best interests.

A few factors the court may consider when determining custody include the:

  • Child's wishes, if they're old enough
  • Child's involvement in school and the community
  • The ability of each parent to provide a safe home
  • Emotional/physical needs of the child
