Factors in Determining Custody
Custody agreements comprise many different factors and legal considerations, all with the best interest of any children involved in mind. Some factors that may help a court determine joint custody include:
- Incomes (current and projected) of both parents
- Cause of the divorce (“blame” establishment)
- Physical and mental health of both parents
- Distance between the separate homes post-divorce
- Financial, medical, and educational needs of children
All of these factors could be considered when a court is determining whether or not joint custody is the appropriate custody agreement for a particular child or children. To make sure that you reach the custody agreement that you want, you might want to consider legal representation.
