Divorce With Respect

Child Custody And Visitation

Sacramento Child Custody Attorney • Visitation Rights Lawyer

There are two parts to custody of children in California: legal and physical. Legal custody refers to the decision-making right and responsibility regarding substantive issues like education, religion, and non-emergency medical care. Physical custody refers to the actual care and control of the children-where the child is, and who that child is with and for what periods of time. Legal and physical custody can be sole or joint . The best interests of the child or children are the primary factors in determining the parties’ custody arrangement.

Visitation is the schedule agreed upon by the parties, or imposed by the court, by which the parties coordinate their respective parenting time with their children. The parties will need to learn how to share the children in a new Postdivorce environment.

The California divorce and family law attorneys of Bartholomew & Wasznicky LLP represent either party in a divorce proceeding where child custody and visitation rights are an issue. We highly recommend considering out-of-court dispute resolution methods – mediation and collaborative law practice – where child custody will be an issue.
