What about Child Custody?

The most likely outcome is that your children (if you have them) will spend most of their time with one parent and have liberal visitation with the other parent. If both parents live on the same school/district than it becomes quite easy for the children to spend equal amounts of time with both parents. But, changes are that you're going to move before your divorce is completed. This means for practical purposes, it's difficult to have equal visitation for both parents.

Some Vallejo divorce lawyers advertise specialty representation of fathers and father’s rights in Vallejo child custody cases. The truth is that California State family law does not discriminate between fathers and mothers as the law applies equally to all people. There isn't any difference between and man and a woman in the eyes of the court. A good Vallejo divorce lawyers advocates for his/her client’s interests. Both fathers and mothers have parental rights.

All good Vallejo divorce lawyers will explain that the right to visitation is based part on a theory in constitutional law. This law states that parents have a fundamental right to parent their children. If neither parent is unfit, each parent shall enjoy residential time with the children after a dissolution of marriage. Vallejo divorce lawyers specialize in child custody and residency issues with all its subtleties. So, get a good Vallejo divorce lawyers, but don't worry - it will work out.

With all the issues that two people face when getting a divorce, deciding visitation may be used as a bargaining tool. However, division of property or monetary settlements will not affect your children as much as child custody and visitation. When the two parent can’t agree on when each sees the child, the child may feel like the center of a tug-of-war. By dealing with the issues concerning the children separately and following a few simple guidelines, visitation after divorce can and will run smoothly.
