Series Conclusion on Discussion Regarding Difficult Personal Histories and California Child Custody Disputes

Posted by Thomas Huguenor on May 13, 2015 in Child Custody

This is the final post in my series discussing parents who are concerned about how their difficult personal history may affect their California child custody case. Throughout this series I have discussed a number of common situations that parents may find themselves in. Depending on the circumstances, some of these situations may make if very difficult for a parent to share custody of their children. There are also circumstances in which a parent will still be able to retain joint custody. Throughout this series I have provided realistic guidelines that family Court Judges will use to make a custody decision.

During the course of this series, we have addressed the following topics in detail:

Throughout this series I have attempted to give parents a realistic idea of their chances of sharing joint custody when their past has potentially placed their children in harm’s way. I have also heavily stressed the importance of addressing past issues, active treatment, and rehabilitation. No matter what a parent’s past issues have been, they are always more likely to win a Judge’s favor if they can prove that their issues have been adequately addressed and resolved. In almost all cases, the Court will acknowledge the importance of both parents being in a child’s life whenever possible. Thus a Judge will almost always be willing to revisit custody issues, if a parent is able to show progress, and continue to live life without repeating past mistakes.

If you have a history that you are afraid your ex-partner will address in Court during your child custody case, it is important to speak to an attorney early on in legal proceedings. Your counsel will advise you on how to gather evidence early proving that you have addressed any past issues. Contact our San Diego family law office today for more information.
