How Is Custody Determined?

First and foremost, determining who will get custody is based on the best interests of the child. However, what is in the best interests of the child actually depends on a number of factors.

  • Environment
  • Parent-Child Relationships
  • Health of All Parties
  • Health & Developmental Adjustments
  • Child’s Living Pattern
  • Child’s Preference

Frequently Asked Questions

  • Questions

  • Is custody granted to only one parent?

    Answer

    Not always. It is actually common for courts to grant at least partial custody to both parents—also known as joint custody. While joint physical custody refers to the child spending a substantial amount of time with each parent, joint legal custody refers to the parents determining important decisions together, such as those involving medical, educational and religious matters.

  • Will I have to take my case to court?

    Answer

    It is not uncommon for a child custody case to need to be taken to court. When you work with our firm, we will try to help you reach an amicable resolution; however, this is not always possible. If you are unable to resolve your case peacefully, we are prepared to represent you in court, where we will ensure your rights and your child’s interests are protected.

  • Can anyone other than a parent obtain custody?

    Answer

    In some situations, parties other than the child’s parents may wish to obtain custody, such as grandparents, an aunt, uncle, or family friend. This may be referred to as non-parental or third-party custody, and is often closely related to obtaining guardianship the child.

  • Why do I need an attorney?

    Answer

    The family law system can be complicated, and child custody processes can be personal and emotional. You need a lawyer who will guide you through the family law system, ensure your process goes as smoothly as possible, and help you reach a solution that is tailored to meet you and your child’s unique needs.
