Child Custody & Visitation Lawyers in San Francisco
Reaching a mutual agreement in regards to child custody and visitation can be very difficult, as both parents have their own needs, desires, and opinions in regards to the custody of their children. It’s to the advantage of both you and the other parent to come to a child custody arrangement on your own, without interference from the court. Being able to mutually agree upon the terms of child custody will save you a lot of hassle, headache, stress, time, and money.
Unfortunately, not all parents are able come to a mutual understanding in regards to child custody. In the event that two parents cannot agree upon a child custody arrangement, the court will intervene. A judge will take many facts into consideration before granting custody to either one or both parents. More than anything else the judge will base his/her decision on what’s in the best interest of the child. Other factors the judge will take into consideration include:
- Each parent’s physical and mental health
- Each parent’s lifestyle
- Each parent’s ability to care for the child
- Each parent’s income
- The relationship between the child and each parent
- The child’s current routine
- The child’s preference, if of a certain age
After considering these factors a judge will rule to grant physical and legal custody to either one or both parents. In cases in which only one parent is granted physical custody, the judge will usually grant visitation rights to the other parent.
