Child custody cases in Redlands

Redlands’ families are not immune to family and relationship breakdowns, and changes in family relations such as divorce or legal separation can lead to issues relating to child custody.

Determining which parent should live with the child or children and exercise legal authority can be a challenge when both parents insist on obtaining sole child custody. In California, the guiding principle in determining child custody is that frequent and continuing contact with both parents after divorce or separation is best for the child. Therefore, courts favor joint custody arrangements and encourage voluntary agreements between parents.

However, it is not always possible for parents to agree on a joint custody arrangement, particularly when there is animosity between former spouses or partners. A family court having jurisdiction over the case can issue a court order on child custody after careful consideration of various factors such as:

  • The child’s gender, age, and physical and mental health
  • The lifestyle of the parents
  • The parents’ mental and physical health
  • The impact on the child if the status quo is changed

The standard in every case is the ‘best interests’ of the child.

If you are in the process of dissolving your marriage or ending your partnership and a child or children are involved, your family lawyer can help you enter into appropriate parenting agreements and submit them to the family court for its approval.

In Redlands, California, the law office of Joyce Holcomb has years of experience in child custody cases, helping clients create and negotiate parenting agreements, and ultimately obtain successful outcomes in custody battles in court. We also handle other family law matters such as adoption and estate planning.

A year and a half ago, before I hired Ms. Holcomb, my ex and I tried to handle the divorce ourselves using the assistance of one of those “divorce mill” attorneys (Uncontested Divorce). My understanding is that these specific attorneys don’t side wit… Read more
