Determining Child Custody

Ultimately, the custody of children is left to the discretion of the presiding judge in the case when the parties cannot agree. All Judges make their determination based on their perception of what arrangement best serves and protects the best interests of your children. When spouses negotiate and agree on a custody arrangement that is equitable, reasonable, and prioritizes the child’s best interest, the judge is likely to approve it. If parents cannot agree, the judge must intervene and make the final determination.
