One of the most difficult aspects of going through a divorce in Southern California can sometimes be agreeing with your spouse about the healthcare of your child. Some parents want their children to attend counseling session with therapists, psychologists, psychiatrists, and the like, while other parents think such sessions can be even more traumatic and difficult for their children. Some parents think such sessions do more harm than good.
Similarly, if a child has a serious health condition that needs to be attended to, the parents need to choose what they feel is the best method of care to be provided to their child. These issues can be difficult to go through and the decisions are hard to make. It can be even harder if there are several doctors that give conflicting opinions and the parents do not agree on which doctor to rely on.
As a general rule, California judges prefer to allow both parents to make healthcare decisions about their children. This is a part of CA joint legal custody. However, when the parents are unable to decide, the judge will make the decision for the parents.
