CHILD CUSTODY FAQ #6

6. What is “the best interest of the child”?

It is what judges must consider to make their decisions about custody and visitation.  To decide what
is best for a child, the court will consider:

  • the age of the child,
  • the health of the child,
  • the emotional ties between the parents and the child,
  • the ability of the parents to care for the child,
  • history of family violence and/or substance abuse, and
  • the child’s ties to school, home, and his or her community.
