Child custody issues can be emotional, but help is available

It is only natural that most parents in California want to spend as much time as possible with their child. This is what makes child custody issues in a divorce so emotional. Parents have to come to the realization that the time they have with their child may have significantly changed. Consequentially, they must also realize that, when their child is with the other parent, they lose some level of control over their child's life. The legal professionals at Kevin Qualls Family Law understand that this makes establishing a child custody plan that meets the needs of the parents and moreover protects the best interests of the child very challenging.

Many times, it is important that a child custody plan provides the child with the ability to maintain a meaningful relationship with each parent. It is important to consider whether joint physical custody is a possibility, given each parent's work hours and their ability to communicate with each other in a positive and productive manner, among other factors.

It is also common for parents to be awarded joint legal custody. This means the parents are both equally allowed to make major life decisions on behalf of the child. For example, decisions relating to the child's schooling, medical needs and what religion the child will practice.
