What child custody arrangements exist under California law?

In many divorce cases, children can suffer the worst from their parents' estrangement. Many times, child custody and child support can become a very bitter and drawn out battle. Custodial issues are exacerbated in cases where the children are born out of wedlock. In most states, including California, the father may not get automatic paternity rights or custody.

Children often suffer the most in a divorce. While the emotional needs of the child need to be met by the biological parents, it is also important to remember the financial aspect of raising a child. Often, the court awards primary or physical custody to one parent. The non-custodial parent, in most cases, becomes responsible for child support. In the event that a child is born out of wedlock, the court may establish child support to help the child and the custodial parent under California law.
