Attorneys Protecting Your Rights to Your Children & Asserting Your Right to Parenthood

Too many San Diego area men suffer after divorce or separation because they are not aware of their rights regarding their children. In California, father’s rights are enshrined in law and guarantee that child custody will be adjudicated irrespective of the parent’s sex or gender.

Can a Father Obtain Custody in California?

The short answer is yes! The courts in California may award partial or full custody to either parent, depending on each person’s suitability to raise the child and the child's best interests. In cases where there is no custody order either parent may keep the child.

Factors That Influence Father’s Rights

There are a number of factors that influence which parent should obtain custody of a child, including:

  • Who primarily cares for the child: The court will look out for the child’s best interest. The parent who currently cares for the child, takes him to school and feeds him, will surely weigh on the court’s decision to award custody.
  • The parent that has custody at the time of the application for custody: The court does not want to disrupt a child’s life, if possible. Hence, the parent that has current custody may have a better chance of keeping it.
  • Where the child wants to live: In the majority of cases an “attorney for the child” is appointed. This attorney will interview the child and speak with the parents. This attorney’s findings can weigh heavily on a judge’s decision.
