How Does The Court Handle Visitation?
At the end of a relationship or a divorce, many parents will need a legal advocate to assist with establishing custody and protecting their right to visitation. California courts will always strive to maintain the family unit and allow the child to remain in full contact with both parents if it is in the child’s best interests.
Here are some of the considerations a judge will take into account:
- The child’s wishes and personal preferences
- The child’s relationship to each parent
- The child’s current school and relationship with the community
- The parent’s living situation
- The parent’s current lifestyle
- The parent’s finances and earning capacity
- The parent’s mental and emotional state
- The parent’s ability to provide a loving, nurturing environment
- If there is evidence of alcohol or substance abuse
- If one or another parent has committed domestic violence
- If one or another parent engages in criminal activity
The next decisions to make regarding custody and visitation rights will be critical, especially in the midst of a divorce. Having an experienced family law attorney to work closely with you and be your advocate can help you achieve a favorable outcome.
