Child custody can be key issue for divorcing parents

When California parents choose to divorce, some of the most controversial and contentious issues that can arise are those related to their children. Concerns over child custody and visitation can be the most emotionally and practically challenging issues at stake. However, no matter how conflict-oriented the divorce is, facilitating a positive co-parenting relationship can be critically important for their children's psychological health and well-being.

How to Keep Custody Battles Civilized

For some partners, divorce is the only practical solution to a troubled or unsatisfying relationship. While legal separation can be a difficult process in any situation, it takes on a new level of complexity when there are kids involved. Prolonged or hostile divorce proceedings can negatively impact a child's development and psychological health, so parents are advised to seek a peaceful solution whenever possible. California law prioritizes the well-being of children, which usually includes regular contact with both parents, in any dispute over custody.

Understanding the tax implications of child custody

As you and your spouse work toward a fair resolution to your divorce, you may find that determining child custody arrangements proves particularly difficult. Many parents focus on their own desires for the child or focus entirely on emotional and practical issues and completely miss some implications of child custody, sometimes costing them dearly.
