child custody & parenting plans Archives

What issues should a parenting plan in California address?

When parents divorce, one thing they must understand is that they must work together to give their child a good life, even though their relationship has ended. This cooperation can begin with a parenting plan. In addition, a custody and visitation agreement contains topics a parenting plan should address.

How can co-parenting after divorce benefit the child?

Divorce is a fact of life for many families in Los Angeles. This, for children of divorce, means that their parents do not live together. Some parents may fear this will have a negative effect on their child. However, quite the opposite is true.

Parents can benefit from legal counsel in child custody cases

Parents in Los Angeles, even if they are going through a divorce, want to do what's best for their child. After all, they are in a position to know exactly what their child's unique needs are. Therefore, it is helpful for parents going through a divorce to try to work together to create a child custody plan out of court. This parenting plan should address both legal custody and physical custody.

Don't focus on the negative when making child custody decisions

When parents in California divorce, it can be difficult to make decisions regarding child custody. It can be distressing to realize that after the divorce is final, they will not see their child every day. In addition, parents may question the ability of their ex to help raise the child, especially if the divorce was acrimonious. However, despite these negative misgivings, parents can try to work together to create a parenting plan that meets the child's best interests, along with those of the parents. When doing so, there are important points to keep in mind.

What types of child custody are there in California?

Parents in California who divorce may have a lot of concerns when it comes to raising their child post-divorce. Not only may they be concerned about the child's well-being, but they also may be concerned about how much time they will spend with the child and what their rights to the child will be moving forward.

Can a custodial parent in California move away with the child?

Whether it is weeks, months or years after a parent's divorce is finalized, a parent may find that they want to relocate with the child. Perhaps the parent got a new job or wants to be closer to family. However, as we will discuss, there are rules in place with regard to whether a custodial parent will be allowed to relocate with the child. Keep in mind that this is only a general overview of child relocation in California and cannot replace the advice of an attorney.

Understanding parental alienation

When you finally come out on the other side of a divorce, you think the worst is behind you. It was likely the most painful and stressful thing you've endured so far. Though life has changed, you can finally breathe a sigh of relief that you survived it and can move forward.

Finding a custody arrangement that fits your family

Sharing physical custody of your children after divorce can be an extraordinarily difficult experience. Not only do you have to adjust to splitting up parenting time, you also need to figure out the logistics of where you, your ex and your kids will all live.
