Filing for child custody in California

When parents get a divorce, one or both of them may ask for joint or sole child custody rights. The case is generally filed in the child's home state. For legal purposes, the child's home state is the state where he or she has lived with a parent or certain other adults for at least six consecutive months. If a child is under six months old, the case can be filed in any state where he or she has lived.

The relocation laws of child custody
