When determining child custody, the court’s foremost concern is what will be in the best interest of the children in question. Unfortunately, when divorces become contentious, some parents lose sight of this goal.
When this happens, it is good to have an experienced lawyer by your side, helping you fight to ensure your children have the stable, secure environment they need to thrive.
Some of the things the court will examine when determining custody include:
- Ages of the children
- Any history of abuse or domestic violence
- Any special needs of the children
- Educational needs of the children
- Living situation of both parents
- The child’s preferences
- The economic situation of both parents
- The employment status of both parents
Determining child custody can be a stressful process. Having an experienced lawyer by your side can help you feel more confident in the courtroom.
