How the Courts Determine Child Custody in California

Child custody cases take into consideration the child's needs and best interests. A court often looks into the wellbeing of the child and works to reduce the impact that the divorce will have on the child's life. Parents dealing with child custody are often encouraged to settle custody terms in mediation, but if an agreement cannot be reached, a judge may determine custody.

If a judge has to step in, there are a few factors that determine if joint or legal custody should be granted to one or both parents:

  • History of abuse or domestic violence in the family
  • Substance abuse committed by the parents
  • The safety and health of the child
  • Each parent's ability to provide for the child
