Determining the Child’s Best Interest in Custody Cases

Divorce has an impact on more than just the couple deciding to end their marriage. It also changes the family dynamics, especially if the couple has children. Deciding to get a divorce can be a difficult decision, but it can be even harder to agree upon child custody arrangements. In some cases, parents can work out a joint custody arrangement to give each parent shared time with their children. Unfortunately, there are many couples who cannot compromise peacefully and have to take their case to court.

You don’t have to go through this time alone. You need a skilled and dedicated attorney on your side to help you fight for custody. Contact a Spring attorney of Garg & Associates, P.C., today at 800-242-2151 and discuss your legal options with one of our qualified legal representatives.

The Best Interest of the Child

In almost every child custody case, the judge will make his or her decision with the “best interest of the child,” in mind. To make this decision, he or she may consider many factors such as:

  • Jobs or sources of income for both parents
  • Any history of domestic violence
  • The safety of the child
  • The stability of the parents’ lives
  • Ability to meet the child’s needs

Additionally, in some cases the child may be interviewed to determine if he or she has a preference in the custody arrangement.
