Create A Child Custody Agreement That Works For Your Child
How Does A Judge Decide Who Gets Custody?
The court always begins by determining if a 50-50 split in parenting time is feasible. Because of factors such as job demands, the location of homes relative to the children’s schools and other factors, most custody arrangements are not 50-50. The family law judge will look at the specific circumstances of your situation and take several factors into account before making a final decision. These include:
- Each parent’s financial situation
- The living conditions of each parent’s home
- The child’s relationship with each parent
- The mental and physical health of each parent
- Any health needs the children may have
- Any history of abuse or neglect
If your child custody case lands in court, having an attorney at your side makes it much more likely that your goals and wishes would have a bearing on the final arrangements.
