How Will a Court Determine Custody

When spouses cannot reach an agreement outside of the courtroom, the decision of custody can be put in front of a judge. In White Plains, and throughout New York, child custody is decided based on the standard of what is in the best interest of the child. While spouses may have some influence, generally, situations which see that a child is best cared for may trump the preferences of either parent. Every family will have a different story and as such, how a judge will determine custody can vary for each case.

Factors a court may consider when determining custody include:

  • The ability of each spouse to provide for the child
  • The emotional attachment between a parent and child
  • The living arrangements and location of each spouse
  • If a child has special needs or health concerns
  • The physical and mental health of each parent
  • Evidence of child abuse or neglect
