Child custody matters are often the most contentious aspects in
divorce. We understand this fact and we know that when the welfare and well-being of your child is at stake, there is very little you would not do. Difficulties arise when the parties in a divorce or custody case are unable to come to a mutual agreement as to what will be in their child's best interests. The most common factors that could influence or determine child custody are the capability of each parent to financially provide for the child, whether or not each parent will be able to maintain a physical home and safe living space for the child, if each parent can emotionally and spiritually attend to the child's needs and wishes, as well as how much each parent is willing and able to personally invest in the child's upbringing. Issues involving alcohol or drug addiction can also influence the court's decision regarding child custody.
Another key factor in child custody cases is determining not only the child's relationship with each parent, but whether the child has a reasonable preference as to where he or she wishes to live. The guiding factor, and which holds the most influence in child custody cases, is always the best interests of the child.
