The process of a divorce is challenging enough.  Those who have children are often most concerned about how to protect their child(ren) and shield them as much as possible.  Parents in a divorce are also almost universally concerned about making sure they achieve their own goals for child custody and parenting time.  There are absolutely things you need to know from the outset which can support these goals and even improve your chances of accomplishing them.

There are two types of child custody under California Family Law: physical custody and legal custody.  Physical custody is the right to have a child living in your household on a full or part-time basis.  Legal custody involves the right to make important decisions regarding the life, health, education and well-being of your child(ren).  Physical and legal custody can be awarded solely to one of a child’s parents or shared jointly between them.  Visitation refers to the time each parent spends with each child, how it will be divided and plans regarding vacations, school breaks and important events such as birthdays and holidays.

The primary guiding principle of child custody and visitation in a San Diego divorce is “the best interests of the child.” Are you concerned about your rights as a parent during a divorce?  Are you worried about how things will work out and how to protect or enhance your chances of achieving your child custody and visitation goals?  Protect your own interests and contact us or call 760-389-3927 to schedule an appointment for a remote or socially distanced consultation with one of our experienced Certified Family Law Specialists.  Each case is unique, and we will work with you to set aside your worries and develop strategies to accomplish your goals and protect your relationship and time with each of your children.
