What Is Custody?
Custody arrangements can be agreed upon by both parents. If, however, you and your spouse cannot reach an agreement, a judge will base his or her decisions on the best interests of your children.
Custody in California has two facets:
- Legal custody that determines which parent will be responsible for making important decisions for your child or children, such as regarding their education, religious training, health care and other important issues.
- Physical custody that determines where your child or children will live.
Parents can be awarded joint or sole legal or physical custody based on the best interests of the child or children. Judges will always seek to ensure that children are well taken care of and parents are as involved in their child’s life as possible.
