We Know the Many Factors Judges Consider during Custody Disputes
There are many issues that a judge may consider while determining a child custody arrangement, including:
- Family history: One of the most important factors a family court will consider when determining a custody arrangement is the history of the family. Issues involving drug or alcohol addition, physical or emotional abuse and other potential harmful issues will be considered.
- The child’s best interests: A family court judge may consider the best interests of the children when making a custody determination. For instance, if one parent works long hours and is out of the home the majority of the day, while the other parent works more common hours, the judge may consider placing the children in the home of the parent who can offer more consistent attention.
