Child Custody

Burbank Child Custody Attorney

Struggling to gain custody of your child(ren)?

Custody of your child(ren) is an extremely important aspect of any divorce or family law case. For many people, it is the absolutely most significant out of everything. While there are many factors that will weigh into the determination of custody (ex: stability of the parents, income, preference of the child), one of the most important will, by far, be what is known in the law as the "best interest of the child." This is, essentially, the combination of all of the most important of all of the different factors.

According to California Welfare & Institutions Code §16000, "it is the intent of the Legislature to preserve and strengthen a child's family ties whenever possible." While this statute is primarily geared toward foster care, it does reflect the attitude that the court takes when determining child custody arrangements. The courts strongly believe that, whenever possible, children should maintain constant & consistent interaction with both parents. Therefore, the days of sole custody are long gone. Instead, whenever possible courts try to work out joint custody which allow both parents to share responsibility and raise the child(ren) together.
