Aspects of Court Decisions for Custody of a Minor

The least amount of disruption in a child’s life is one of the main goals in child custody cases. Therefore, there are certain aspects that a judge considers when awarding custody. The best interest of the minor is of the utmost importance in any case of child custody, so the relationship between the parent and child is one of the most significant deciding factors in awarding custody. The other aspects included in custody cases include:

Most Courts Prefer Shared or Joint Custody Plans

If parents or guardians are to agree to a joint custody plan, the court will agree to it. The court approves a plan unless it is harmful to the minor or the plan was agreed to involuntarily. Most courts prefer shared or joint custody arrangements. These seem to cause the least amount of damage or disruption in a child’s life.

However, sole custody is still sometimes granted for various reasons. These reasons include the mental, emotional, physical, and educational well-being of the minor in question. In these cases, the court often grants limited or supervised visitation rights to the other parent. Call today to discuss child custody services from The Lawrence Law Firm, PLC in Roanoke, VA.
