What Are the Best Interests of the Child?

Massachusetts Custody Lawyers Protecting Your Child's Interests

In Massachusetts, when the courts are trying to determine what to do regarding a custody order, their standard of review is “best interest of the child.” There are a lot of things they look at, including the age of the child and if a parent has been a primary parent throughout the marriage. However, at the end of the day, making that determination is all about what they think is the healthiest situation for the children.

There are two parts to our job as child custody attorneys:

  • Our primary role is to advocate for you and make sure that your concerns related potentially to the other parent’s parenting ability are heard—and they are often very valid concerns.
  • The other part of our role is communicating with you so you can take yourself as much out of the equation as possible.

Divorces can go smoothly and can make the least amount of impact on children when both parents work together to create a detailed agreement. Miller Law Group, P.C. is here to help you every step of the way and guide you to create a strong parenting plan that will help your child transition.
