The issue of custody is one of the most sensitive issues to be resolved in a divorce. There are many factors that come into the final decision of how custody is to be determined. Sometimes parents go to court with a parenting plan outlining their wishes in this area. However, the court's main function is to determine what is in the best interest of the children, as determined by the judge.
Judges can take many things into consideration, such as which parent is most likely to allow consistent contact with other spouse, the emotional well-being of the child, the wishes of the parent, the children's attachment to current house, school and community, among other things.
Since custody is often considered the most important issue in a divorce, it is important to have professional, experienced legal representation.
