  • Custody decisions are based on many factors, especially the best interest of the children.
  • Discuss your specific custody situation with your attorney and learn what the courts will and will not consider in deciding where your children will live.
  • One of the court’s most important considerations when trying to determine custody is whether or not the parent seeking custody can successfully facilitate a relationship between the children and the other parent.
  • Willful interference with that essential relationship will reflect poorly with the court and may cause custody to be granted to the other parent.
  • Custody is a very complex area, so review your history with your attorney and choose the best course to move forward.
