Experienced Roseville Lawyers

In Placer County and throughout California, split custody refers to situations where a divorcing couple has two or more children and the children live with different parents. For example, a couple might have a son and daughter. After divorce, the father becomes the custodial parent for the son and the mother becomes the custodial parent for the daughter. Split custody is rare in California, especially when children are very young. Even with split custody, one or both parents might need to pay child support to the other, depending on their incomes and the needs of the children.
