Dealing with parental issues in custody cases

California family courts evaluate custody decisions in light of the needs and interests of the children that will be affected. Because the best interest of a child is a high priority, it is not a foregone conclusion that a parent with a past involving drug abuse, domestic violence or other negative behaviors will be prevented from having any type of custody. Although joint legal custody might not be ordered if a parent is considered unfit, in many other cases, a parent will be legally entitled to be a part of the decision-making process. In fact, physical custody might be possible if the parent's negative issues are not recent.
