Determine What’s In Your Child’s Best Interest Through Your Family Law Lawyer

As a Family Law lawyer of many years, I know how sensitive an area it is emotionally when the courts are trying to decide what is in the best interest of a child.

How the Courts Determine What’s In Your Child’s Best Interest 

As a parent, you may instinctively know what makes your child happy or sad. But, the courts look at many other factors that have to do with the child (or children’s) well-being. These elements also have much to do with your kids’ emotional state and, when trying to determine which parent the young boy or girl will stay with the majority of the time, the courts will make that decision based on even more things.

These factors have to do with serious issues, such as the child’s overall health, the school they will attend, and the overall quality of their everyday life. As your family law lawyer, I will of course go deeper into this with you.

Still, for now, in order to give you an easier way to understand this before visiting me for your initial consultation, The U.S. Department of Health & Human Services Administration for Children, the Administration for Children and Families, and the Administration on Children Youth and Families Children’s Bureau published this informative article to help parents like you who are currently wondering how it is actually determined by the courts what is really in your child’s best interest when they are going through a situation where their parents are splitting up.
