How parents can handle child custody and visitation

When parents in Alameda County make a decision to live apart from each other, both may need to come to an agreement about child custody and visitation. While each family has its own unique circumstances, several types of arrangements are some of the most common options to arrange shared parenting time. Among the options that are most popular are weekly joint custody schedules, weekend visitation options, vacation and holiday visitation, and supervised or third-party visitation.

What divorced parents can do to help children during holidays

The holidays can be a tough time for divorced and separated families. Anger, fear, sadness and betrayal are among the emotions that both children and adults might contend with, but parents need to set these emotions aside to focus on their children. It is important to try to make sure that children still enjoy their holidays even though it may be hard for the parents.

How parents may protect their children during a divorce

When parents in California go through a divorce, there might be reasons that one parent is concerned that the child is unsafe with the other parent. In one case, one father was worried that the child's other parent would drink and drive with their 7-year-old son in the car. She had moved away with the child and cut off contact. The father was also concerned because she had not been the child's main caregiver during their relationship.
