How is Custody Determined in California?

Child custody is often one of the most contentious issues in a divorce. Judges and parents will always seek a legal and physical custody schedule that is in the best interests of the child, which does not necessarily mean they will always award joint custody or favor one parent. If, for example, there is abuse or neglect or should one parent’s household offer a standard of living closer to what the child is accustomed to, sole physical custody may be awarded.
