College needs to be considered as part of child custody decision

Divorce is a fact of life for many California parents. Yet, regardless of the problems that they have with each other, they still have a responsibility to their children. These responsibilities are often outlined as a part of the divorce, child support and child custody agreements.

Types of child custody available to California couple

The end of a California couple's marriage often means the end of many things. It can mean the end of battles over finances, friends, family and more. However, it does not mean the end of one being a parent when children are involved. Exactly what this new parental relationship will look like, though, does begin to take shape in the form of a child custody agreement.

Are prison nurseries in the best interest of the child?

Motherhood is an amazing time in a woman's life. It is filled with time spent bonding and nurturing her babies. For some women who are incarcerated, a new program has allowed them to not only deliver their babies in prison but to keep them with them for the duration of their sentence. In California and other states, female prisoners believe that it is in the best interest of the child to raise their babies behind bars.

Grandparents assuming parenting roles in child custody cases

A growing number of grandparents find themselves raising their grandchildren instead of retiring to pursue hobbies and travel. Studies show that with the ever-present opioid epidemic sweeping the country, an overwhelming number of children are being removed from parents who are battling addiction problems. In California and other states, grandparents are being called upon during child custody cases to assume the parenting role.

Child custody remains a family affair for Josh Lucas and ex-wife

Living in the Hollywood spotlight, it can be hard to hold a marriage together. When one actor and his ex-wife split in 2014, they chose to adopt a co-parenting arrangement known as "bird's nesting" after their divorce and child custody hearings. In California, more parents are opting for unconventional ways to parent their children after a divorce.

Child custody rights terminated because of addiction

Drug addiction is a severe epidemic, and children are usually the casualties. More and more children are removed from their parent's custody because of substance abuse. Experts say heroin is the most common drug of choice, making it the most difficult to treat, and the pain from withdrawal often has serious complications. In California, child custody rights are often terminated to protect the children of addicts.

New parenting bill may add a twist to child custody

When couples decide to end their relationship, it often involves children and a parenting agreement. For years, American culture dictated that mothers were naturally awarded primary custody and fathers were the every-other-weekend parents. In California and many other states, new shared-parenting bills could change child custody and visitation agreements.

Soldier fights for child custody while serving his country

There is no greater heartache for a parent than being thousands of miles away from his or her child. Even worse is a soldier fighting for his country overseas and struggling to maintain custody of his son here in the states. In California, there are laws in place that allow service members to designate temporary child custody during deployment.

Are vaccines in the best interest of the child?

A mother was recently sentenced to serve five days behind bars for violating a court order. She is in contempt of court for violating an order that required her to have her son vaccinated. In California, it may be in the best interest of the child to receive vaccinations.

Child custody versus shared custody

Parents are still the greatest influence when it comes to the happy and healthy future of a child. During divorce and child custody in California, experts agree that both parents should play an equal part. The norm for children, regardless of their age, should be shared parenting in a child custody agreement. As strange as it may seem in 2017, some say court systems still lean toward the mother for physical custody 80 percent of the time.
