Child Custody Lawyer in Fullerton

California recognizes two types of custody: Legal Custody and Physical Custody. Fullerton Child Custody Attorney Hugh Douglas Whittemore

Legal Custody determines which parent will have the right to make decisions regarding the schooling, health care and general well-being of the child, and Physical Custody determines with which parent the child will primarily reside.

California courts tend to favor Joint Legal Custody, allowing for each parent to share equally in decision making. However, if the parents are unwilling or unable to effectively communicate or a determination is made that Joint Legal Custody would not be in the best interests of the children, sole legal custody will typically be ordered.

Physical Custody may be shared equally if the parent’s residences are in close proximity. However, if their living arrangements make 50/50 physical custody unfeasible, a parenting plan will be implemented to ensure that the non-custodial parent is able to enjoy a continuous, ongoing relationship with their child.
