Determining the Best Interests of a Child

When children are involved, the court will establish a custody agreement that benefits the child most. Our first recommended step is to undergo mediation, helping both parents come to an agreement without involving the court. After all, you know what arrangement would be best for your child, however, if you cannot come to an agreement during mediation, a family law judge will provide a child custody arrangement according to how they see fit.

What constitutes the best interests of a child?

  • Their emotional development
  • Their health and safety
  • Their stability
  • Their standard of living
  • The wishes of the child

Numerous considerations determine a custody arrangement. The court seeks to foster the child’s learning, development, growth, and relationship with both of their parents. Our family lawyer can help ensure that your voice is heard and what your child's needs are successfully communicated.
