How is Child Custody Determined?

The best case scenario in a divorce or child custody battle is that both parents make a decision in an amicable manner. However, this is not always possible for a wide range of reasons. The first step you should take if you are involved in a child custody case is to seek legal advice about what your options are. If the decision is left up to the judge in family court, rather than a decision made between the two of you and approved by the court, they take into account a variety of factors.

A few examples of the factors which may be considered include:

  • The distance between the parents' homes
  • The preferences of the children
  • The ability of each parent to care for the children
  • The parents' ability to spend time with the children

Handling Complex Child Custody Issues

Every divorce or child custody battle is different and therefore must be approached with a unique outlook. Certain cases have complex issues involved, such as accusations of domestic violence or even past drug abuse. All of these factors can come into play when you file for divorce or custody. Our child custody lawyers in Tacoma are here to provide you with the compassionate representation you deserve.
