McKean: Child Custody; Disabled Child

In re Marriage of McKean (Child Custody; Disabled Child)

California Court of Appeal, Fourth District

Published Opinion, (2019) 41 Cal.App.5th 1083

File Date:
Filed 11/8/2019

The family court modified a custody order by awarding sole legal and physical child custody of two of their three children to their father because it found she was incapable of maintaining joint legal and physical custody of those children while also having custody of her severely disabled daughter. The court of appeal reversed. Neither parent had requested that order and the family court failed to consider the siblings’ bond before making its order.
