Best Interest Factors

Some of the factors that the family court will consider when determining what will be in the child’s best interests (in terms of how to divide custody) include:

  • The requests of each parent.
  • The child’s custody preferences (if the child is mature enough to express them).
  • The mental and physical health of each parent.
  • Each parent’s ability and/or willingness to encourage the child to continue having a positive, loving relationship with the other parent.
  • The distance between each parent’s home and whether the child would need to adjust to a new community.
  • Whether either parent has a history of domestic violence, abuse, criminal activity or addiction.
