What Happens if Parents Cannot Reach an Agreement About Child Custody in California?

child swinging on a swingIn California, parents who cannot reach an agreement about child custody and parenting time will have their matter decided by the court. A judge’s decision is always based on the best interest of the child.

The child’s health, safety, and welfare are of primary importance when determining a custody order. The court will also make a decision that allows the child to benefit from “frequent and continuing contact with both parents.”

A judge may consider several factors when determining the child’s best interest, including:

  • Each parent’s ability to care for the child
  • Each parent’s co-parenting skills
  • If either parent has a criminal record
  • Any history of drug or alcohol abuse
  • Each parent’s emotional and mental stability
  • Evidence domestic violence or child abuse
  • The child’s preference, if he or she is mature enough
