Understanding Child Custody Laws in California

In a perfect world, both parents would be able to sit down and agree on custody matters. If you and the other parent of your child cannot seem to agree, the decision will be left to the judge in California family court.

A Pasadena judge typically considers many factors – such as each parent’s income, relationships with the child, and the child’s wishes – to decide. Our legal goal is to help you prepare for any situation and to protect your parental rights.

Key Factors in Pasadena Child Custody Decisions:

  • Where the child will reside
  • Decisions about the child's education, health, etc.
  • How the child will get back and forth between the homes
  • How long each parent will spend with the child

We look forward to hearing your story and learning about your goals regarding child custody. Once we understand your desired outcome, our child custody attorneys in Pasadena CA can tailor our representation to reflect those goals.
