In the state of California, there are several options for child custody. You will want to understand the different aspects of sole legal and physical custody prior to determining if joint custody is right for your familial situation.

  • There are two types of joint custody that the court can award:
  • Physical: This type of custody means that both parents will share actual physical custody of a child. It also means that a child will reside with each parent for a set amount of time, typically determined by the court.
  • Legal: This type of custody specifically refers to the decisions made regarding the child's health, residence, and education. As joint legal custody, both parents will make these decisions.

Most courts seek to rule in a child's best interests. Often times, they see joint custody as beneficial for the child, as having both parents in their life can minimize emotional trauma and help them get the full parenting they deserve. If joint custody is not appropriate, such as one parent is in jail or has a dangerous lifestyle, the court may decide to give sole custody to one parent.

If you would like to learn more about the types of custody available in your divorce and how to protect your rights, be sure to contact our firm today for counsel. We can review your custody options in a free case evaluation.
