We Help Protect the Child's Best Interest

When it comes to determining who will receive custody of minor children, there are many factors that will be considered, including:

  • Relationship between the parents and child
  • Needs of the child
  • Skills and capacity of the parents
  • Preferences of the child
  • Instances of abuse or neglect
  • Work schedules of parents

All factors will be considered based on what is in the best interest of the child. Our firm is committed to ensuring that the children are placed as the first priority and focus of all such decisions.

Of course, no two situations are ever the same, and depending on the specific circumstances of your case, results may vary. The state of California recognizes legal and physical custody, both of which can be either sole or joint. Visitation arrangements may vary based on the type of custody in place.

Types of Visitation Orders

Visitation orders will be specific to each case; however, there are various types of visitation that are generally ordered, including:

  • Reasonable visitation - These are typically open-ended arrangements that leave the schedule up to the parents. In order for this to work, parents need to be on amicable and communicative terms.
  • Scheduled visitation - This is a common visitation option that provides the family with scheduled visitation to help avoid future conflict.
  • No visitations allowed - Under this specific type of visitation, the parent not allowed visitation is generally considered an emotional or physical risk to the children.
  • Supervised visitation - With supervised visitation, a parent may be required to have a court-appointed professional monitor the visitation on a specific schedule.
