Child custody and visitation rights are often the most passionately argued part of a divorce or breakup of unmarried parents. In most cases, the presumption is that a child is best served by having significant contact with both parents. When a judge decides what the parenting schedule will be, he or she makes that decision according to what is in the best interest of the child.

Factors in La Jolla Child Custody Decisions

In every child custody and visitation case, the goal of family court judges is to find an arrangement that will be in the best interests of the child. Our job is to help you present your case effectively, by showing, for example, that you have an active role in your child’s life that should be maintained. In making determinations, judges consider a variety of factors, including:

  • The age of the children
  • Educational and health needs
  • Access to friends, family and school
  • Distance between the parents’ homes

The level of activity you have in your child’s life can be very important. Did you coach his or her youth sports team? Are you the one who usually takes your child to school? These are just two examples of things that can improve your position in a child custody dispute.
