CALIFORNIA FAMILY CODE
STATEMENT OF REASONS FOR DENIAL OF JOINT CUSTODY ORDERS
Family Code Section 3082
When a request for joint custody is granted or denied, the court, upon
the request of any party, shall state in its decision the reasons for
granting or denying the request. A statement that joint physical custody
is, or is not, in the best interest of the child is not sufficient to
satisfy the requirements of this section.
