Child Custody & Visitation

Child custody and visitation can be some of the most contentious and traumatic matters in a parent’s life. Child custody and visitation issues require extraordinary knowledge, experience, sensitivity, and attention to detail.  It is essential to have the best legal counsel possible to ensure your rights, and your children’s best interests, are protected. 

At LLM Family Law, our team has over 70 years of combined experience in providing legal representation and guidance to those involved in custody and visitation disputes. We understand the importance of crafting a well-thought-out agreement tailored to the needs and best interests of the children and parents.

What is Considered the Best Interests of the Child?

In California, the primary goal of custody and visitation law is to protect the best interests of the child, taking into consideration a number of factors, including:

  • The child’s health, safety, and well-being
  • The child’s age
  • The child’s routine 
  • The history of contact between the child and each parent
  • The ability for each parent to care for the child
  • Any history of child abuse or neglect, spousal or intimate partner abuse, or any other form of family violence
  • Any substance abuse by either parent
  • And more

Can a Parent Be at Risk of Losing Child Custody?

In California, there are several factors which might lead to a parent losing custody of their child, including:

  • Child abuse or neglect
  • Spousal or partner abuse
  • Alienation of the other parent
  • Kidnapping
  • False allegations of child abuse
  • And many more

Can a Parent With Joint Custody Move Away with the Child?

The relocating parent must receive either the other parent’s agreement, or court approval, before moving the child’s residence many miles away, or to a place far enough away to interfere with the existing custody order. If the parties cannot agree to a modified custodial arrangement, the court can step in to make changes to custody..
