The Best Interest of the Child

Parents who are dealing with child custody issues are typically worried about how the court will settle the matter of custody.  Generally, when deciding child custody, courts evaluate several factors, all of which relate to what is in the best interest of the child.  These factors include:

  • How the parents want to share custody.
  • What the child wants to do about custody.
  • Each parent’s relationship with the child.
  • How the child interacts with any siblings or other affected parties.
  • Which parent is willing to let the child spend quality time with the non-custodial parent.
  • The overall health, including physical health and mental state, of both parents and the child.
  • Who is currently caring for the child.
  • If either parent has attempted to coerce the other to get custody.
  • If either parent has been involved in domestic violence or abuse of the child.
  • If either parent has been convicted of fabricating claims of domestic violence or child abuse regarding the other parent.
