Pasadena Child Custody Attorney

Protect the Best Interests of Your Child in California

Parent with custodyNeed an attorney for a child custody case in Pasadena? Child custody is one of the most disputed issues in divorce. It is possible for two spouses to agree upon child custody and visitation rights in an uncontested case and to draft their own agreement on the issue. However, most child custody cases result in litigation. In contested divorce cases, the court focuses on the child's best interest when determining which parent (or both) will have custody over the child. If you are looking to pursue a divorce that involves children, be sure to hire a Pasadena child custody attorney who has the experience, persuasion, and aggression to fight for an outcome that caters to your best interests and to those of your child or children.

Types of Child Custody

There are four variations of custody in California:

  • Sole physical custody
  • Joint physical custody
  • Sole legal custody
  • Joint legal custody

Sole custody means that only one of the two parents has custody, while joint custody means that both parents share custody of the child. Physical custody refers to whom the child will reside with—in joint cases, the child could live with one parent during the weekdays and the other on weekends, with one parent during the school year and the other during the summer, and so on. Legal custody refers to which parent or parents make life decisions for the child. In joint cases, both parents must come to an agreement for a decision to be made.
