How Does Child Custody Work in California?

Last updated 5 years ago

How is child custody determined in California? As you will learn in this video, when it comes to divorce and child custody, the best interests of the child come first.

One example of a recent divorce and child custody case involves the actors Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes. In this case, Katie Holmes was awarded primary custody of their child because she travelled less and therefore provided a more stable home environment. When the children of a divorce are minors, the California court will do everything it can to minimize emotional trauma.

If you are going through a divorce in California, you need an attorney who is experienced in complex issues of family law like child support and child custody. To speak with a lawyer, call the San Jose office of Moreno Family Law today at (408) 266-9011.
