    Child Custody Attorneys in Oxnard, California

    At the Land Legal Group, our Oxnard child custody lawyers know just how important your children are to both you and their other parent. This means making important decisions about where they are going to live, and how they are going to spend their time during and after a California divorce.

    Depending on their ages, and each parent’s relationship with the children, you may both be willing to split your parenting responsibilities in half. In other cases, parents can agree on an equitable timeshare and parenting plan that fits their and the children’s schedules. In others, it means both parents are willing to fight for what you think is best.

    Our Ventura County child custody attorneys will help you understand how the California child custody laws will view your case and provide a customized legal strategy that will allow you to pursue the best outcome for your unique circumstances.

    First, it is important to understand the legal process, so you can make informed decisions about how your case unfolds. Here is what parents throughout California need to know.

    How Will the California Family Courts Decide Who Gets Custody of Our Children During a Divorce?

    At the Land Legal Group, our Oxnard child custody lawyers know that when it comes to who gets what, including custody of their children, knowledge is power. Ideally, the California family courts prefer parents make child custody decisions outside the courtroom. This could mean determining — either in private or during mediation — who gets primary custody, and who gets visitation rights, and outlining a parenting plan that places the children’s best interests first.

    When parents are unable to make these decisions without the court’s interference, the judge will turn his or her focus to the children, and what is best for their futures. This means weighing important factors that will impact their decisions.

    The California family courts will consider the following factors when determining child custody:

    • The children’s ages.
    • The health and safety of the children in each home.
    • Both parents’ ability to care for the children.
    • The emotional relationship between the parents and their children.
    • Amount of time each spouse currently spends with the children.
    • Both parents’ schedules for work, travel, and commitments outside the home.
    • Any history of domestic violence or substance abuse.
    • Where the children currently attend school or participate in extracurricular activities.

    The courts will review any child custody factors they deem relevant to the case, including whether both parents are promoting a healthy and positive relationship with the children and the other parent. This is important, because negative talk about the other parent may backfire inside the courtroom, leaving the parent who is discouraging a relationship with a lesser share of custody. Our Oxnard child custody attorneys can help you understand the best legal approach to pursuing the best outcome for your unique case.

    What Can I Do If My Ex-Spouse is Falsely Accusing Me of Harming Our Children?

    At the Land Legal Group, our child custody lawyers in Oxnard know that when couples are going through divorce proceedings, the narrative can become less than desirable — especially when children are involved. Whether it is one parent threatening to “take the kids” from the other or making disparaging remarks about each other in front of the children, both are ill-advised approaches to getting the outcome you desire.

    If you have an adversarial relationship with your soon-to-be-ex-spouse, and you know they are going to do everything they can to ensure you do not get custody of your children — including making false allegations about physical, emotional, or psychological abuse, or stating you have a drug or alcohol problem and are unable to care for your kids — we want to know about it right away.

    False allegations of child abuse or other bad behavior will not be tolerated by the California family courts, or our law firm. Our skilled Oxnard family lawyers aggressively defend our clients from these harmful and disturbing scenarios by developing the necessary evidence to prove otherwise.
