When couples in California are divorced, both individuals face changes to the future mentally, emotionally and physically. As they deal with their feelings, it is often easy to forget about the children in the marriage and how they are affected by the divorce. Although the Los Angeles Times states that the divorce rate in California is dropping, there are still many children who need help getting through their parent’s divorce.

Going through a divorce can be a difficult process, especially if there are children involved. With strong emotions, it can be hard to determine who is entitled to what, the rate of alimony and child support, as well as who should be given custody of the children. In California, and in other states across the country, custody is awarded keeping the best interests of the child in mind. Sole-physical custody was traditionally thought to be advantageous for children, as they did not have to live between homes. However, studies show that joint-custody may be a better option, as the children are able to spend a significant amount of time with both parents.
