California Child Custody Laws refer to both legal custody and physical custody. Legal custody is having the right to make decisions regarding the health, education and welfare of the child such as choosing physicians, medical care, schools, etc. Physical custody is basically where the child lives day to day, with the parent having the right to make day to day decisions for the child. The court can award sole legal and physical custody to a parent, or joint legal and physical custody to both parents or a combination thereof. The general standard for determining custody is "What arrangement is in the Best Interests of the Child." This determination involves looking at every aspect of a child's life including that child's personality and unique characteristics as well as analyzing each of the parent's abilities, personalities and relationship with the child.
