Making Decisions In The Best Interest Of Your Children Can Be Challenging

Determining decision-making authority and how your child will share their time with parents during or after a divorce or separation can be a difficult process. Separating parents seldom agree on what "the best interests" of their child is.

The family courts have guidelines for creating appropriate parenting time plans. If parents cannot come to an agreement on their own, the court will make a custody decision based on the best interests of the child. Some of the factors the court considers include:

  • The wishes expressed by the parents and the child
  • The child's general relationship and interactions with parents and other family members
  • The child's home, school and community environment
  • The physical and mental health of the parents and the child
  • The special needs of the child

When your family dynamic is shifting, you need a reliable lawyer who will protect your most important relationships.
