Child Custody in Orange County, California

Disputes over child custody can quickly turn hostile. A seasoned custody lawyer in Orange County, California, Attorney Robert Glasser has provided experienced legal counsel to child custody clients, like you, throughout the course of his 40-year career.

You should know that there are two categories of custody - Physical and Legal. Physical custody determines who the child will reside with and when. A co-parenting or “visitation” schedule will usually set out the times each parent has physical custody. Legal custody determines which parent has the right to make decisions regarding the children’s health, schooling and welfare. California prefers joint legal custody, having found that when decision-making is by both parents, it works best for their children.

When couples are not able to successfully put aside their differences and create their own parenting plan through divorce mediation or the collaborative process, the decision is left to the Family Law Court. But the judge does not know you, your spouse, or your children. What results is a tug-of-war. Parents, their attorneys, and one or more psychologists pull and push for a custody decision that one parent wants and the other cannot accept. The foundation is laid for inter-parental strife lasting far into the future.

In the Family Law Court, before ordering child custody in a contested case, the court typically examines the following:

Relationship between the parents & children

Amount of contact between the parents & children

The fitness of each party to care for the children

In Orange County, California family law courts require parents in contested child custody or visitation cases to attend court-based mediation before a judge will hear evidence. This requirement is to encourage the parents to work with each other to decide what is best for their children, and not make the court do it for you. Usually, there is one session provided to forge an agreement before the Court makes decisions for you.
