How Child Custody Is Determined
The court system aims to make custody decisions based on what would be in the best interests of the child. However, it is rarely a cut-and-dried matter since each family’s situation is unique. The following are just some of the factors that may be considered while determining child custody:
Each Parent’s Ability to Provide a Stable Home Life
Preference of the Child (If Old Enough to State One)
Physical and Mental Health of Each Parent and the Child
Child’s Ability to Adjust to a New Environment
Child’s Relationship with Extended Family Members
Generally, it is better to settle child custody issues during mediation with your ex-partner rather than going to court. Regardless of what your case involves, our legal team will work tirelessly to improve your chances of a desirable outcome.
