Depending on the children’s ages, frequent and regular contact (even in short bursts of time) may be a must to continue the bonding process and ensure the child does not become distant from the father.This is where the which we reference and explain on this website, come in handy. Even if your case is not in Orange County, we believe these guidelines will help you understand the different types of common parenting plans available.In making an order granting custody to either parent, the court shall consider, among other factors, which parent is more likely to allow the child frequent and continuing contact with the noncustodial parent, consistent with Sections 30, and shall not prefer a parent as custodian because of that parent’s sex.The court, in its discretion, may require the parents to submit to the court a plan for the implementation of the custody order…” The law specifically forbids bias.
Vacation and holiday time is a critical part of a working father’s schedule.Joint custody can be shy of equal parenting time (although not by much) or equal parenting time.Sole or full custody means the father wants the much larger parenting time (typically 65% or more).And if the family law judge will focus on the children’s best interest, then you must too. Of course, I refer to our family courts here in Southern California, where we handle cases. And if there really was a bias, there is no way we would get the results we get for dads.My experience is fathers who claim a bias did not prevail in family court and one of two things usually happened.
