Child Custody

If you’re going through a divorce, you have plenty to contend with, but your children’s ongoing well-being, health, and happiness are often your first priority. As such, deciding on child custody arrangements that support your children’s best interests and that work for you is highly important. An experienced family law attorney from The Broadway Law Firm in Los Angeles can help you in this endeavor.

Physical vs. Legal Custody

The State of California addresses two distinct types of custody, which include:

  • Legal Custody – Legal custody refers to the parental responsibility and right to help make important decisions on behalf of one’s children. These decisions relate to your children’s education, health care, religious upbringing, and extracurricular activities. The courts generally find that it is in the best interest of the children for both parents to share legal custody.
  • Physical Custody – Physical custody refers to whom the children reside with. While physical custody arrangements vary significantly, one parent is often the primary custodial parent (with whom the children live primarily) while the other parent has a visitation schedule.

California courts have wide discretion when it comes to custody arrangements, but their motivation is always the best interest of the children involved. You and your divorcing spouse, on the other hand, have the opportunity to hammer out child custody arrangements (that work for both of you) between yourselves. If you are unable to do so, however, the court will intervene on your behalf.

“I reached out to Broadway Law Firm regarding a personal injury claim. The Attorney who took my case was Mark. I would definitely recommend Mark. He has the experience necessary to win your case and get you the highest compensation. Thank you Broadway Law Firm I couldn’t be happier.”

Fernando Vasquez


“I had interviewed 12 lawyers before hiring the Broadway Law Firm. My case got affected by the pandemic and it was an extremely stressful and difficult time. Most of the other lawyers treated me like earning potential and gave me the rates I could not afford, without any promises to win my case. Once I talked to Mark Kiran I had hope. I was then represented by Anthony Catena who always was very professional and treated me with respect. He didn’t drug my case, made sure I don’t accumulate unnecessary charges, and was a great support during the most stressful time in my life. He won my case, got my son back to me AND got me some money back from my ex to pay my legal fees. I am beyond grateful for their work and support. If you are looking for a legal representation don’t waste your time and call them, they got you.”
