Divorce Attorneys Lawyers Los Angeles
Custody And Visitation - Parents who separate must decide which parent their children
will live with. They also must decide how they'll share their parenting responsibilities.
Sometimes parents can't agree, so the judge has to make the decisions. Many parents can
agree and can make a custody/visitation agreement that they give to the court. This
agreement is also sometimes called a "stipulation for custody/visitation," a "parenting
plan," or a "time-share plan."

The judge makes the final decision, but usually will approve an arrangement that both
parents agree to.

If you can't agree on custody, a judge will have to make the decision. You'll probably have
to meet with a Family Court Services mediator before the judge will make a custody order.
