Do you need a child custody lawyer in Riverside?
Child custody cases are some of the most sensitive in nature – a fact that we are acutely aware of at the Law Offices of Richard K. Isles. Accordingly, we handle these types of cases with the upmost sensitivity, care, and privacy. Whether you are looking to establish child custody or you are interested in modifying a current custody arrangement, we are here to help.
What factors are considered by the court?
To determine a child custody order, the court will consider a number of different factors, just some of which include:
- Child’s age (the court can consider a child’s preference if the child is 12 years of age or older)
- Child’s health
- Each parent’s health (mental and physical)
- Each parent’s lifestyle choices
- Each parent’s ability to care and provide for the child
- Current emotional bond between each parent and child
In almost all cases, the court will try to keep both parents involved in the child’s life. Exceptions to this rule occur when it can be proven that one parent’s mental and / or physical behaviors could be detrimental to the child’s well-being. For example, a parent whose history involves domestic violence, child abuse, and / or drug abuse could be denied custody of their child.
