Factors Determine Custody Child Custody

What factors go into determining custody and visitation?

The primary consideration is, “What is in the best interest of the child?” The focus is from the viewpoint of the child as opposed to the wants and desires of one parent or the other.

Some states have established a general rule that it is in the best interest of a child to have continuing and frequent contact with both parents and the parent who is most supportive of this concept becomes the custodial parent. If one parent attempts to undermine the relationship between the child and the other parent, this factor could be considered in providing custody or additional visitation to the other parent. In California, the impact of a proposed move on a noncustodial parent’s relationship with his children may be considered a relevant factor in determining what is in the best interests of the child.
