I am a father and I was granted temporary custody of my 2 year old daughter ( emergency court order ) since my daughter is living with me. Before that the child was living with her mother, but she is unable to take care of her. I live in Northern CA and the mother lives in Southern CA. I wanted to know what happens during the court hearing? I want legal and physical custody of my daughter. Will the judge make the decision of who will receive full legal and physical custody in the same hearing or will there be other hearings? Basically, I want to know what the process is? I would appreciate any answers or advice. Thanks.
