How Courts Determine Child Custody And Visitation

You may be familiar with the phrase "In the best interests of the child." This term can seem very subjective. In many ways, the court needs this statute to be flexible. Not every family looks the same and circumstances vary widely. But, there are a number of factors that the court will consider when evaluating what is in your child's best interests. These include:

  • Each parent's ability to provide for the child's physical needs, including medical care
  • Each parent's mental and physical health
  • Each parent's willingness to foster a positive relationship between their child and their child's other parent
  • The child's existing community, education and social relationships
  • The child's preferences
  • Any history of domestic violence, substance abuse or another criminal activity

While the courts can decide contested custody disputes, it is always preferable for families to work out their custody agreements together. In an ideal world, both parents will come to the table and decide together how to best care for their child. Our attorneys can represent you in court or negotiations.
