Child custody battles can take a toll on any family, especially the children. While this is never easy, it is important to know your rights. Custody laws in California do not show preference to either parent, however mothers are historically seen as caretakers more so than the fathers, so traditionally it is awarded to the mother. We feel that child custody decisions should always be based on the child's best interests.
There are a lot of factors that can go into a decision of custody. You must prove that you are able to provide for the child, both physically and psychologically. We can help you prepare legally for anything that could arise before a hearing.
We certainly understand you might have more questions as it relates to Child Custody Law. Call John H. Kibbler, Attorney, a family law firm in Santa Ana, CA today and we will be happy to help you.
