Who Gets Child Custody? What Are The Factors That Are Taken Into Account?

If you are involved in a case, where you are trying to get child custody, you may feel worried, hurt, or even angry – probably because you do not want to lose. You need to control your emotions because that may affect your decision. You have to have a cool head so that you can deal with the situation wisely. The idea is to be well informed on what the laws say about it. The more information you have about the laws on how the court determines about the custody of the child, the easier it will be for you to handle the process. Whether your case is in a court or you are trying to get a mutually agreeable decision with your ex-spouse through talks (outside the court), there are several factors that must be taken into account. The most important thing is to make sure that the child’s interested is well protected. The final decision must be based on what is best for the child, not what is best for you.
