Determining Custody & Visitation
In most cases, unless something like substance abuse or domestic violence is involved, courts favor a continuing relationship with both parents for a child. Knowing your child best, you can likely determine how to meet this need. If you and your spouse cannot agree on custody and visitation arrangements, the court will intervene and make decisions on your behalf.
When making custody orders, courts consider:
- Each parent’s willingness and ability to cooperate with the other
- Each parent’s contributions to the child’s care so far
- Each parent’s wishes
- The child’s wishes if they are mature enough
- Any history of substance abuse, child neglect, or domestic violence
