How Is Custody Is Determined in CA?

In all cases where child custody must be established, the courts will always rule in favor of what is believed to be in the best interests of the child.

Factors considered include but are not limited to:

  • Each parent’s ability to financially support the child
  • Each parent’s mental and emotional well-being
  • Each parent’s employment and current earning capacity
  • Any history of family violence, including substance abuse
  • Amount of time each parent currently spends with the child
  • Age and health of the child
  • The current emotional ties and connections between each parent and the child

Additional factors will be considered as well. The best way to prepare for your custody case and all aspects that will be reviewed by the court is to hire an attorney. A practiced child custody lawyer like myself can help protect your parental rights both in and out of court.

  • I have faith in Jeffery Graff.

    “I am a battered woman. Jeffrey saw this when I walked in a year ago to hire him to get a divorce. I was not ready. I thought I could save my 27yr marriage. He knew I would be back when I was ready. He never pushed me to follow through, he waited for me to make to be ready for the long haul. I finally did it! I got tired of being abused in so many ways. Jeffery is a very patient man. I know he will take care of me!!!!! So far so good. I know he is going to keep me in my house for now or ever. He was honest and said we may have to sell but I know the job will get done in my best interest!”
