When Courts Determine Custody
Because we are experienced both in contested and uncontested divorce and family law matters, our Birmingham custody lawyers understand how to approach child custody and visitation through negotiation or courtroom litigation. Whenever possible, we recommend a collaborative approach, as this will enable parents to work out a custom custody agreement suited to their unique needs. When the courts are involved, they will make custody determinations based on set factors. They may not know the intricacies of your family situation and may offer a less lenient or flexible approach to custody arrangements.
Alabama courts determine custody based on the best interests of the child, which may take into consideration the following factors:
- The emotional, educational, material, and other needs of the child.
- The home environment provided by each parent.
- Each parent’s ability to address the child’s needs.
- Each parent’s age, physical health, mental health, and character.
- Depending on the child’s age, his or her preference.
- Each parent’s relationship with the child.
- The effect that a change in custody may have on the child’s current situation.
Whether we are fighting for custody in court or negotiating on your behalf to reach an agreement that suits you and the other parent, you can count on Guster Law Firm, LLC to protect your legal rights.
