Child Support and Custody
Cases involving your children can be emotionally complex, and establishing child support or determining custody in California can be a complicated process. A properly calculated child support order is essential in providing for the needs of children. California maintains statewide guidelines are an important reference point for calculating child support orders. The guidelines are based on the combined income of both parents and other factors, such as the number of children, health care costs, day care and education expenses, special needs, and other factors.
When it comes to child custody laws in California, there are two types of custody to consider: legal and physical. Legal custody refers to the right and responsibility to make important decisions regarding the health, education, and welfare of a child. Physical custody refers to the actual physical care and control of the child. In California, joint legal custody is most often awarded, meaning both parents share the rights and responsibilities for making decisions about their children’s upbringing. Joint physical custody is also possible, which means that each parent has significant periods of physical custody with their child.
In determining what type of arrangement is best for a family, California courts look at several factors including the age of the child, their emotional ties to each parent, any history of family abuse or neglect, as well as ties to school and community. Ultimately, courts strive to make arrangements that are in the best interest of the child while also taking into account both parents’ rights, interests, and other factors that can affect the child’s financial, mental, and physical wellbeing.
