6 Factors That Influence Child Custody Arrangements

6 Factors That Influence Child Custody Arrangements

People often think that mothers automatically receive full custody of the kids in a divorce. This is wrong! Even after a divorce is finalized, parenting is a partnership and both sides deserve to spend time with their children.

Times have changed. Mothers and fathers often spend equal time raising their children. This means that child custody isn’t always a quick, simple decision. Modern judges have to take into consideration a variety of factors, including:

  1. A couple’s willingness and ability to work together to make decisions about their children
  2. Each parent’s ability to handle his or her parental responsibilities
  3. Each parent’s commitment to fostering a healthy relationship with the other parent
  4. The stability of each parent’s home life
  5. The distance between the parents’ homes, if it would interfere with joint custody
  6. The best interests of the children

All of these components help build a case for how custody will be split between parents. If you’re facing a divorce, you need the help of an experienced attorney.
