Custody & Parenting Time

How is Child Custody and Parenting Time Determined?

The courts​ often try to allow both parents to maintain a relationship with their child, as long as it ​doesn’t jeopardize the safety of the child. However, one parent will ​typically ​be awarded residential custody. ​

The residential custodial parent is the parent who is better situated to meet the day to day needs of the child. In determining residential custody, courts will consider factors including: ​

  • ​Stability of ​home ​environment​
  • Relationships with siblings​
  • Financial stability​
  • Preference of the child​
  • Child’s relationship with parents​

The parent who is not ruled the residential parent is generally entitled to parenting time, formerly known as “visitation.”
