How Courts Determine Child Custody

Having handled various family law cases for over 28 years, our legal team has extensive knowledge of child custody proceedings and ways to effectively protect your family’s interests. We can help create a child custody arrangement that is reasonable and agreeable to the courts and the child’s other parent.

The court will determine custody based on the following factors:

  • The physical and mental health of both parents
  • Your child’s relationship with you and the other parent
  • The cooperation between you and the other parent
  • The distance between the parents’ homes
  • The stability of each home environment
  • If your child has any special needs
  • The child’s preference (depending on his/her age)

There are many different types of custody and these include sole legal custody, shared legal custody, sole residential custody, and shared residential custody. Legal custody refers to who gets to make the decisions concerning the health of the child, schooling of the child, etc. whereas residential custody refers to which parent gets to share a living space with the child. We work closely with you to help determine the ideal arrangement for your child.
