We Answer Your Custody Questions So That You Can Move Forward With Confidence & Peace Of Mind!
In California, there are many laws and rules governing custody. Going into a custody dispute with a basic knowledge of how custody works can give you an advantage! During your consultation, our Ventura child custody lawyers will give you a more in depth explanation of your options, but there are essentially two types of custody to be concerned with: physical custody and legal custody.
Physical custody is related to the percentage of time that a child will be under the physical care of each parent, while legal custody refers to the right to make major decisions about the child’s health, education, extracurricular activities, religion, etc. Most of the time, for both of these types of custody, the parents or court will decide between a joint custody arrangement (in which parents share time with the child), or a sole custody arrangement (in which one parent is awarded full rights). How custody is determined depends on many factors, and there are also many aspects of custody - like child support - that may not even occur to you while you are so consumed with moving forward during this difficult time in your life. Our detail-oriented attorneys will ensure that you have clarity regarding your rights and responsibilities every step of the way!
