Yes. In fact, Orange County family courts have set guidelines that they follow depending on the age of the children.
Surprised? It actually makes perfect sense because kids of different ages handle custody schedules (and change) very differently. Fortunately, there is no one perfect schedule for every age group. Each has several custodial schedules and parenting time depending on different factors including the degree of bonding between each parent and the children as well as the children’s needs. Everything is of course focused on the children’s best interest and, as they get older and especially into their teenage years, their choices start to factor more into the child custody analysis.
