Custody & Visitation in Santa Clarita, California
In cases of divorce, the court will determine the child custody arrangements for the child or children of the parties. The Court will look to what custodial arrangement is in the “best interest of the children.” Often the initial visitation schedule established by the parties at the time of separation can be crucial in the Court's determination of a long-term custodial plan. Therefore, it is critical that parties involved in a custody proceeding seek the advice of an experienced family law attorney to assist them in navigating their custodial rights. In addition to legal custody, the Court will decide as to physical custody and visitation. It is crucial that any order, or agreement, be carefully phrases to deal with issues such whether the agreement is permanent, any possible future modification and what standard of review will apply, how specific the custodial orders are relating to exchanges, holidays and decision making authority, and many other areas of custody law. Ensuring a well drafted custody order is the key to reducing future disputes between the parents which can negatively impact your children, who are already dealing with significant changes and stressors in their lives as a result of the custody dispute between their parents.
