Among the many emotionally charged issues that arise during divorce is child custody. Determining whether one parent will receive full or partial custody of a child will depend on a number of personal and financial matters.
In the event that parents are unable to come to a clear consensus, a judge will need to rule on child custody. The two factors that a judge will evaluate are 1) the child’s primary caretaker and 2) the child’s best interest. The parent who is most involved in such practices as meal planning, healthcare arrangements, and teacher conferences will be highly considered.
