Child Custody Archives

Who pays child support when parents share joint custody?

Both parents have certain parental rights. Moms and dads are entitled to visitation or custody of their children. They're both obligated to support their son or daughter financially, though. It can be challenging for moms and dads and the court to decide who should pay child support when both parents share joint custody of a child.

Differing parenting styles can make custody decisions tough

If you are in the throes of divorce, setting up your child custody arrangements can seem like it's a nightmare that never ends. After all, if you were able to agree with your spouse on important issues like how to raise the kids, you might not have wound up in divorce court to begin with.

Various factors are considered with best interests of the child

When there is a divorce in California and the couple has children, child custody will inevitably be one of the biggest issues that must be considered. There can be frequent disputes regarding child custody and it is rife with emotions. Parents will want to maintain a relationship with children despite the end of a marriage and it is important to understand how the law decides on custody. A term commonly used is "best interests of the child." Knowing what that entails and other factors can be essential to a case.
