Child Custody Options
There are two primary types of custody in California. Legal custody means that a parent’s role involves deciding significant choices about the child’s welfare, education, health, and other aspects of their upbringing. Physical custody specifically refers to having the child be physically present in that parent’s home.
Judges often encourage joint physical custody and legal custody if possible, so that both parents can participate in raising their children. Sometimes parents’ careers, medical conditions, or financial circumstances will not allow this to take place, or the parents simply decide to divide custody in alternative ways. Your legal advisor can help you determine the safest and most conducive option for you and your family’s well-being.
