How Is Child Custody Determined?

When the court is making a decision about child custody and putting together a parenting and visitation schedule, they strive to keep your child's best interest in mind. However, they may not always have the same details and information about your family and the reasons you should have custody of your children.

A few factors which may be considered in the decision include:

  • Children's' preference (if old enough)
  • Parents' relationship with the children
  • Past criminal/addiction history
  • Financial assets/earning capacity
