How Is Child Custody Determined?

Matters of child custody and visitation schedules are very complex. There are many different elements which are considered by the court when they are making a decision on who will have primary custody over your child or if custody will be shared. We are here to help you understand what the court is likely to take into account and represent you in court.

Child custody may be determined by a number of factors, including the following:

  • Each spouse's relationship with the child
  • Each spouse's earning capability
  • Each spouse's current income and job
  • The distance between each spouse's homes
  • If the child has a preference
