California Divorce Custody

Similar to other states in USA, California divorce custody laws are based on the premise that best interests of the child are met and the welfare of the child should not be compromised. These two factors are kept in mind while ruling for divorce child custody in the courts of California: Custody and visitation rights are also not granted to the child who is/was born of a rape. If the non-custodian parent has a record of being alcoholic or indulged in drug abuse, then also the visitation rights of that parent maybe forfeited by Californian courts. Divorce is a traumatic experience to the entire family. Californian courts simply try to mitigate the damage by ensuring the best possible haven of protection to the child.
