Can a Father Get 50 50 Custody in California?
California child custody laws do not mandate a 50-50 custody time for
fathers seeking joint physical custody. However, joint physical custody is generally synonymous with a 50/50
custody program in California. Accordingly, joint physical custody is
appropriate as each parent has significant time with the children.
Custody Matters Our Lawyers Assist In
- A key issue of divorcing couples with minor children is custody. If the
parties cannot agree on terms, we can get your matter in front of a judge.
- Sometimes a custody agreement that worked at the time of case conclusion
may not work later down the road. We can help you get your modification
case before a judge, if the parties cannot agree on the arrangement.
Even though a separating couple is still legally married, many times couples
must reach agreements on child custody and
- If the parents of a child are not married at the time of birth, they must
legally establish paternity for the father to gain parental rights.
- There are a few circumstances in which a grandparent may need to exercise
their legal right to a grandchild. We will help you in this endeavor and
aggressively advocate for your rights.
- Sometimes parents may refuse to honor a child custody arrangement, even
when it is legally required. We will help you get the other parent to
participate with the agreement.
If you must move a great distance from the other parent, you may need to
modify a custody agreement to reflect this move. This can be a difficult task, but our attorneys
have garnered many victories.
