Primary Factors in Determining Child Custody

When it comes to determining child custody, the court looks to the best interests of the child.
As such, the question of who will be awarded custody is largely determined based on the facts of each individual case before the court.
The court will carefully evaluate many factors such as:

  • The child’s wishes
  • The health of the parents
  • Domestic violence
  • Parenting skills
  • Drug or substance abuse
  • The parents’ work schedules
  • Stability and quality of the parent’s
    living environment
  • Location of any siblings
  • The willingness and ability to support
    the child’s relationship with the other
    parent

Custody may not necessarily be granted to a child’s parent if they are unavailable or unsuitable.
In these and other such situations, stepparents, grandparents, and other family members may also seek and potentially be granted custody of a child.

Child Custody

When couples divorce, they need to make many important decisions and resolve certain life matters. Few issues may bear greater significance than the subject of child custody. Custody of children is an emotional, and sometimes contentious issue between divorcing or divorced spouses. The prospect of no longer living with child/children or potentially losing the close-knit relationship a parent has with their offspring can be distressing. Tell us your situation and see how we can help you with a successful resolution.
