Skilled Child Custody Lawyer
California law recognizes multiple custody arrangements. There are a variety of factors that family law court considers when determining what will be in the best interests of the child or children. Carnohan Law is a family law firm able to represent clients in the full range of custody matters:
Joint Legal Custody: This type of custody agreement allows both parents to have a part in making decisions that affect the child’s health, education, and other aspects of well-being. If parents can work together, joint legal custody is awarded.
Sole Legal Custody: If one of the spouses is determined by the court to be an unfit parent, the other parent will be awarded sole legal custody and granted the right to make decisions regarding the child without the consent of the other.
Joint Physical Custody: This type of arrangement gives both parents an equal amount of parenting time. Although physical custody is split between the two, the family court judge may orderchild support to be paid.
Sole Physical Custody: Under this kind of custody agreement, the child will live with the specified parent and usually have visitation with their other parent. The parenting plan will provide details of these provisions.
If the judge decides visitation with a certain parent could likely be harmful to the children, visitationmay be modified into supervised visits. In cases where this occurs and the court later finds there is not a risk of harm, the visitation orders can be changed again.
