3 things to know about child custody cases

Here are three things that every parent should know before they start fighting for child custody in San Diego, California:

-You could be granted joint or sole legal custody of your child- Joint custody is when both parents are awarded custody of the children physically or legally. With joint custody, children split time between parents, and both parents are involved in major decision making for the kids.

-If you’re granted joint custody, you’ll need to work out a visitation schedule- With joint custody, it is important to work out a schedule that will work for you and your co-parent. There are multiple different variations that parents can choose from to accommodate both children and parents.

-You can fight a custody ruling by applying for a modification of custody- If both parents work together to create a new plan it can be filed to the court for approval. Otherwise, one parent can present a case to the court with documentation and evidence of why the new plan is beneficial.

The judge will consider many factors when making a child custody decision, such as the age and health of the child. The judge will also look at your history as a parent and your financial situation.
