For separating or divorcing parents, issues of custody are front and center. There are a lot of decisions to make: Will parents share joint custody, or will one parent have sole custody and the other visitation? Will they share decision-making, or will one parent have the final say on things like medical treatment and education? What’s the best way to divide parenting time?
California law favors joint physical and legal custody when both parents agree to it. If they don’t agree, there is no starting presumption either for or against joint custody. Instead, the court has the widest discretion possible to design a parenting plan that is in a child’s best interests.
