The question of who gets custody of a child can be one of the most contentious subjects in a couple's divorce.
When child custody is being determined during divorce, there are several factors, guidelines and laws taken into account before deciding on a child custody agreement. Ultimately, a child custody order needs to be what is in the best interest of the child. The courts consider the rights of the child; however, family members interested in petitioning for custody may have that right.
Child custody laws are different in each state, and each divorce court considers a number of factors when deciding what is in the best interest of the child. Learn more about protecting your rights to child custody by speaking to a local divorce lawyer.
