Orange County Child Custody Attorney

Understanding Joint Custody

With more focus on the active and direct involvement of both parents, more and more courts are looking favorably on the inclusion of joint child custody. This type of custody allows parents to share the custody responsibilities, whether they are having joint legal custody, joint physical custody or a combination of the two. This allows for either the parents or the court to work out a schedule that suits both the children and the parents in terms of housing, work schedule and the like. Usually, children alternate either weeks, months or six-month periods with each parent. Some schedules give week days to one parent, while the other gets weekends and holidays.

While most courts consider this a favorable situation, there are several cons that should be considered. These can include the constant shuffling of the child from home to home. This can be disorienting and confusing for the child, as well as expensive for the parents as they have to work to upkeep two separate homes for the child. For this reason, it is important to sit down and discuss your individual situation with an Orange County child custody lawyer to decide what is best for your family.
