Child Custody Archives

Parental use of marijuana still can affect custody cases

With the legalization of recreational marijuana use here in California, questions still surround certain aspects of the substance and its usage. One particular gray area is how the state's family courts will rule regarding custody when one or both of a child's parents use cannabis.

Child custody can heighten the stakes when dissolving a marriage

The desolation of a marriage is an emotionally charged time for both you and your spouse and divorce becomes more complex when there are children involved. Addressing financial matters of property division, spousal support, and so on is paramount; however, next to the emotional question of who will maintain custody of your child, these factors may seem much less critical. Often, those impacted most by divorce are the children involved. Settling issues of intangible value like child custody, support and visitation rights can be taxing on both parties. While there may be contention as to the correct course of action, it is typically best for the minors that a certain amount of civility and objectivity be exercised to reach an outcome that is in your children’s best interest.

Why Child Custody Should be in the Best Interest of Children

Child custody is a highly sensitive issue, which evokes varied emotions whenever it is raised. This issue often comes up when parents are undergoing a divorce or separation. By contesting your children's custody with your spouse, you are possibly acting in their best interests.
