Primary Factors in Determining Child Custody

When it comes to determining child custody, the court looks to the best interests of the child. As such, the question of who will be awarded custody is largely determined based on the facts of each individual case before the court. The court will carefully evaluate many factors such as

  • The child’s wishes
  • The health of the parents
  • Domestic violence
  • Parenting skills
  • Drug or substance abuse
  • Stability and quality of the parent’s living environment
  • The parents’ work schedules
  • Location of any siblings
  • The willingness and ability to support the child’s relationship with the other parent

Custody may not necessarily be granted to a child’s parent if they are unavailable or unsuitable. In these and other such situations, stepparents, grandparents, and other family members may also seek and potentially be granted custody of a child.
