Experienced Roseville Lawyers

In Placer County and throughout California, only one parent might have physical custody, either by agreement or court order. In this situation, the other parent is considered the non-custodial parent. He or she usually has court-ordered visitation with the children, unless a judge terminated their parental rights. In many divorces, the non-custodial parent must pay child support to the parent with custody. Being labeled the non-custodial parent does not mean you do not have important rights with your child. In some situations, a non-custodial parent might petition a court later to become the custodial parent. A lawyer’s assistance is helpful.
