Creative Parenting Plans & Child Custody Modifications

Every family is unique and, ideally, parents can cooperate outside of court to develop a parenting plan that matches their specific situation. Of course, that kind of cooperation may not be easy, especially when the parents are in the process of divorcing. It is crucial, then, to have skilled legal guidance to help you develop a parenting plan that is best for all parties involved.

At Mansouri Law Offices, we can help fight for you to achieve your child custody and child support goals, whether through negotiation with the other parent or by aggressively protecting your rights in court. We also handle post-decree modifications such as move-away proceedings and changes to child support. As our client, you can rely on us to protect your rights and interests every step of the way.

We handle child custody cases, including:

Understanding Child Custody Law in California

In California, child custody is determined with regard to legal custody and physical custody. To understand your options and for help with determining the best solution for you, you need an attorney on your side. We will guide you through this sensitive situation and will fight to protect your rights and the best interests of your child.

Legal Custody

Legal custody gives a parent the right to make important decisions regarding the child's welfare, including matters of education, religion, and medical care. Legal custody also allows the parent to obtain information about the child from schools, doctors, governments, and other such institutions.

Courts almost always award joint legal custody to the parents, unless there is specific cause to believe that this arrangement would not be in the best interests of the child. Joint legal custody means that parents confer on decisions regarding the child.

Physical Custody

Physical custody is granted to the parent with whom the child will live most of the time. Joint physical custody means the time with each parent is split relatively evenly. The basic schedule will be officially agreed upon as part of divorce proceedings, but the schedule does not have to follow one set structure.

Courts will award joint physical custody when possible and if both parents want such an arrangement. In some cases, however, sole custody is granted. Typically, with sole custody, the non-custodial parent is granted certain visitation rights, although there are extreme situations in which one parent is denied custody and visitation.

In all determinations of child custody, the best interests of the child are the top priority.
