Did you know that child custody is not always connected to divorce? Custody issues come up in other situations also.
Examples include a couple that had a child together but never married. Now they are breaking up and facing a custody dispute. A primary caretaker, such as a stepparent or grandparent may seek custody. It is not always easy for the court to determine who should get custody. They look at the best interests of the child when making this crucial decision – the child’s happiness, safety, well-being and good health.
Custody issues involve emotional and personal matters. If you are facing custody issues with your child, contact an experienced Orange County Family Law attorney who will make sure that your child’s best interests come first.
