Factors that affect who gets custody

| Apr 23, 2015 | Child Custody |

When you are going through a divorce, your circumstances will affect what is most important to you. For some people, keeping their favorite or most precious assets from the marriage is important, but for most couples who have children, the custody arrangement is what truly matters. When you have lived years of your life seeing your children every day, the idea that you will only get occasional visitation rights is terrifying. Knowing the best ways to make a strong case for custody can help you avoid this.

This article lists many questions about getting child custody and answers to help people understand their chances and circumstances. There is a useful list of factors that courts look at, such as financial and physical ability of the parents, the level of adjustment that would be required of the child’s changing circumstances, the emotional bonds created and many others.

If you peruse the list, you will likely come to the conclusion that the most important factor is how invested you are in your child’s life and upbringing. Parents who frequently put their own desires above the desires of their children are less likely to get custody, as well as parents who have demonstrated a lack of desire or ability to provide for their children. Most other factors are secondary concerns.

Of course courts do not follow you around every day maintaining an objective measurement of your parenting skills. It is up to you to showcase your investment and abilities as a parent to prove to the courts that you deserve custody. Attorneys familiar with Texas custody laws may be able to help Texas residents make the strong case needed to get a fair custody arrangement.
