Disputes over child custody are often one of the most difficult parts of a divorce or legal separation. They're also one of the most important; the children's future can literally depend on the outcome of the case. California courts are legally required to decide custody cases in the way that's best for the kids -- not the way either parent thinks is best. Sometimes, it's hard for parents to agree on a parenting plan, even when both are genuinely trying to do what's best for their families. Other times, parents may agree but need help understanding and drafting all the legal documents they need to win court approval.
Circumstances sometimes change. You may remarry, lose a job or get a new one, or have to move hundreds of miles away. Sometimes, the other parent doesn't "play fair" with visitation, or does things that make you worry about the children's well-being. California family courts allow you to change an existing child custody arrangement, with a good reason, but it requires another trip to court, and sometimes complicated financial paperwork or other documentation.
