Maintaining legal custody after a split

Ask a California parent who has gone through a divorce or separation from their spouse or partner about the most stressful part of their uncoupling, and they may likely respond about protecting their kids from hurt and harm. Parents often worry that their children will be upset, damaged or otherwise affected by their relationship changes, but there are important steps parents can take to minimize the impact of divorce or separation on their kids. Those steps include remaining advocates for their children despite their marital dissolutions through the maintenance of their legal custody rights.

While physical custody rights pertain to a parent's right to have their kid live with them and under their roof, legal custody has little to do with the physical location of a child. Rather, legal custody concerns a parent's right to be involved in decision-making events about their child's upbringing, such as where they will go to school and if they will receive particular medical treatments.

Parents know their kids the best and so it is imperative that they retain their legal custody rights to stay involved in the changes that may impact their children. The Brandon Law Group zealously advocates for parents' legal and physical custody rights so that these important legal pathways between children and parents are not broken by divorce and separation.

Understanding child custody and how it works in California is the first step parents should take to protect their kids during their pending legal proceedings. Those who wish to start this process may visit the Brandon Law Group online or contact the attorneys of the firm at their local Seal Beach office in Southern California.
