Child custody is one of the biggest concerns of divorcing couples. In many divorces, the two parties are fighting each other for custody of their child/children. It’s never 100% pre-determinable who the judge will rule in favor of, but, without question, the judge is going to make that decision by determining your children’s best interests.
If you are in a child custody battle, or anticipate one, you can reach out to the child custody attorneys at Lasiter & Jackson In Phoenix to help you understand your particular situations and ‘best interest standards’. In general, there are crucial factors that will be taken into consideration.
There used to be a presumption that the children should always say with the mother following a divorce. However, that isn’t something that is honored by most states and many states do not hold custody preferences for the father or mother of the children.
