In California the most important factor the court uses to determine child custody and visitation is what is called “best interest”. This “best interest” standard gives the court broad discretion to order a custody and visitation plan that is in the best interest of the child’s healthy, safety, welfare and education. The court will hear both parties’ sides to determine the child’s “best interest”, including but not limited to, the child’s age, each parent’s living situation, each parent’s willingness to support the child’s relationship with the other parent, and the relationship the child had with the parents prior to requesting custody.

If a parent intends to avoid having to pay child support by refusing to work or working less, the court can “impute” income. Imputing income means that the court treats the parent who is earning less than what he or she can as if they were earning income. Therefore, when the court calculates child support it will consider both parents’ income, including the “imputed” income.
