How Custody Is Decided

In general, most courts take several factors into account when determining custody, including:

  • Physical and mental health of each parent
  • Ability of each parent to provide for their child’s basic needs
  • Emotional relationships between each parent and the child
  • Lifestyle of the parents
  • Child’s educational situation
  • Preference of the child, if they are old enough to express it

However, in most custody cases, the most important factor for determining custody is the logistics involved in instituting the plan. The courts have strict requirements based on the age and academic stage of the child. The rules of custody change dramatically based on where in the timeline you are and how your present situations appear to the court.

Effective July 2017, the courts in California instituted a revised approach to child custody services and how they are handled within each county in the state. Working with an attorney who understands the practices and policies in your county is crucial to reaching your goals.
