For The Record

March 18, 2009

James Cook obituary: The obituary of joint custody advocate James Cook in Thursday's Section A said a 1980 California law made joint custody a first preference in custody decisions. The law states that it doesn't establish a preference but allows discretion in choosing "a parenting plan that is in the best interest of the child" and emphasizes that courts in granting sole custody should consider whether the custodial parent is willing to allow "frequent and continuing contact" with the noncustodial parent.
