Child Custody Archives

What factors do courts consider in making child custody decisions?

Child custody is one of the most important issues couples with children have to deal with in divorce, if not the most important issue. Ideally, couples are able to set their differences aside and work together to settle upon a custody arrangement that is beneficial for their children. This is not possible, though, in every case.

Navigating a Move-Away Child Custody Request

When a divorce reaches a friendly resolution, many people believe that this final agreement will never change; however, like many legal documents, it is possible to amend this agreement. If the divorce process involves children, this isn't that unusual. One of the common reasons that this agreement could be changed is the need for amendment as a result of a child custody move-away petition.

Not always easy: court intervention re parenting decisions

Of course it's a given that parents customarily wield sizable authority over their children and are given broad latitude regarding their determinations on matters focused on discipline, setting boundaries and the proper punishment -- if any -- to dole out when they believe doing so is in a child's best interests.

Can a child custody order be changed?

In any divorce involving children, there are bound to be some difficult and emotional times. This is particularly true in cases where divorcing parents aren't able to agree about the terms of a custody agreement. As we discussed in a recent blog post, in contested custody cases, a family law judge will take several factors into consideration when attempting to determine what type of arrangement serves a child's best interest.
