Family Court Legal Issues
When it comes to legal separations or divorce, it’s important that parents come to an agreement that suits their children the best. This also applies to non-married couples who have children and are not together wishing to devise an agreement. When it comes to the best interests of the children, the courts look at several things including:
- The preference of the child(ren)
- The wishes of the parent or parents
- The health of both parents
- The stability of the child’s home environment
- The wiliness and ability to facilitate a close relationship between the child and other parent
These are just some things that the courts will use to devise a child visitation order and subsequent child support order. Visitation is often decided by the parties and is based on what is reasonable for the child, convenient for each parent according to work schedules, and what is acceptable by the court.
