How child custody can be resolved during divorce

Whether child custody agreement is mediated and determined between the parents or the family law court needs to help resolve child custody concerns, all child custody considerations are based on one guiding determination. That guiding determination is what is in the best interests of the child.

The family law process provides different options for divorcing parents to address divorce-related concerns such as child custody. Child custody is likely high on the list of top concerns for divorcing parents who may wonder what their child custody arrangement will look like. Divorcing parents are encouraged to reach a child custody agreement that reflects the best interests of the child.

One options is for the parents to agree through a mediated child custody arrangement. When parents are unable to agree on a child custody arrangement, the family law court can also help develop a child custody arrangement that is in the child's best interests. The best interests of the child means that any child custody agreement must serve the child's happiness, security, mental health and emotional development.

The court will look at an extensive list of factors ranging from the health of the child and parents to the child's living situation and other factors to evaluate what is in the best interests of the child. What is in the best interests of the child should guide parents or any decision maker involved in the process of determining child custody during a divorce, making it helpful for parents to know what the best interests of the child refers to.
