Factors That Influence Custody In Minnesota
Judges consider the best interests of the child when determining custody. Although they prefer to award joint physical and legal custody when possible, they understand that this is not always best for the child. A variety of factors can impact the custodial arrangement, including:
- The parents’ ability to raise the child
- The child’s relationship with each parent
- The child’s involvement in school, sports, church and other activities
- The location of each parent’s home
- The presence of alcoholism, drug addiction or severe mental illness
- The presence of domestic abuse
Every parent feels that they know what is in their child’s best interests. We will advocate tenaciously for the outcome you need. If necessary, we can file an appeal or petition for a post-judgment modification.
