Child custody and creating a child custody plan is not as easy as it may seem. I speak from my nearly 12 years of experience working at Family Court Services and from my experience as a child custody attorney in San Diego.

I have had many consultations with prospective clients who do not understand the intricacies and complexities involved in developing a child custody plan. There are many factors that need to be considered when developing a child custody plan. For instance, is there a current child custody plan in place or a court ordered child custody plan in place.

Discussing the current custody plan is important in order to understand what the parties have been used and how the child is doing under the current child custody plan. Additionally, it is important to figure out what is working and what may need to be modified so that the entire child custody plan may not need to be changed.

From my experience, courts do not like to change an entire parenting plan if some of it is working especially because it affects what the child is used to. They would much rather change certain aspects that may not be working as well when modifying a child custody plan.

There is too much information regarding developing a child custody plan than can be listed in this blog, and I will discuss more aspects of it in my next blog.

To inquire further about your family law matter look for a local family law attorney who can discuss this process as it relates to your specific situation. In San Diego, contact the Law Offices of Brian A. Victor for more information on your specific family law situation.
