Southern California Law Firm Frequently Asked Questions Video
How does the court determine child custody?
So in California, when people get divorced and they have children, the court needs to decide who gets primary custody of those children. And the standard that the courts use is what’s referred to as the “best interest of the child.”
And the court’s goal in any custody hearing is going to be to look at the child’s life and the child’s needs and their going to try to craft custody order that meets the best interest of that child.
