Settle Your Child Custody Matters With Our Assistance
The single-most important issue for parents going through a divorce is almost always their children.
The law requires both parents (in most cases) to play an active role in their children's lives, but the decision of how the parents will share physical custody depends primarily on what the court considers to be in the best interests of the children. While you and the other parent are allowed to negotiate your own custody arrangement, that agreement must be approved by the court before it can be made official.
At Sunset Family Law, we understand how important it is for you to make sure your children are cared for as much as possible. We're happy to advocate for you in negotiations and in court so you can get the arrangement that is ideal for both you and your children.
What factors go into determining custody arrangements?
The general standard courts use when approving or developing custody arrangements is to always consider what is in the best interests of the child. But what goes into that, specifically? Here are just a few examples of some possible factors:
- The ages of the children
- Each parent's own wishes
- The relationship between each child and each parent
- The ability of each parent to provide a stable home life
- The accommodations each parent has in their home
- Which parent (if any) has provided the majority of childcare
- The income level of each parent
- Each parent's ability to provide for the child's needs
- Any evidence of domestic violence, abuse or neglect, or false allegations
