How Is Child Custody Determined in California?

The court system will generally consider the following when deciding custody:

  • Health, safety, and welfare of the child
  • Parents' history of domestic violence or substance abuse
  • Nature and amount of contact with each parent
  • Child's ties to school, home, community, and other family in the area
  • Ability of each parent to care for the child
  • Age and health of the child

Can a Mother Keep the Child Away From the Father in California?

According to the law in California, the mother automatically gains custody of the child if she is not married to the father. Therefore, there is no need for unmarried mothers to take legal action to fight for their child's custodial legal rights, even the decision to choose the father's role in their child's life.
