Who Gets Custody?
Custody arrangements incorporate two types of custody: physical custody
(parenting time) and
legal custody. A parenting plan determines where a child will live; legal custody determines
which parent can make significant decisions concerning the child's
welfare. Either type of custody can be shared in a
joint custody arrangement. While courts typically prefer joint custody arrangements,
these are not always in a child's best interests Sole custody, when
necessary, leaves decision-making in the hands of one parent.
Numerous factors may be considered to determine who will actually receive
custody of a minor child:
- The relationship between the parent and the child
- The ability to provide for a child
- The income of both parents
- Where the parents live
- The ability of the parents to provide for the child
- Where the child wishes to reside (in certain situations)
- Parent's history of abuse or criminal records
Some cases may also require a
paternity test before a ruling can be made. Of course, no two situations are the same,
