Serving Parents in Glendora & Irvine
Struggling over child custody can add another painful stress to a divorce proceeding.

Mothers' Rights in California
There is no presumption of custody in California and either a father or mother can have legal or physical custody of their child or children. Because both parents have an equal claim, the courts will base custody decisions on what is in the best interests of the children. It is important to let the court know if there are situations that affect your children’s safety or well-being. The court can take the information and adjust the conventional arrangements.
Some situations that may affect custody include:
- Domestic violence
- Sexual or physical abuse
- Drug or alcohol abuse
- Incarceration or criminal behavior
Finding a custody solution is at the center of protecting your parental rights. A healthy relationship with a mother is a foundational part of childhood. If you are facing a custody dispute in your divorce, our experienced Glendora family lawyer can help.
