Factors Considered for Child Custody Agreements
Often times, divorcing parents typically fail to come up with a child custody agreement on their own. Parents commonly want from their parenting plan than the other spouse is willing to give, but instead of compromising, they take their case to court. A judge will then consider the child’s best interest when weighing a decision. After analyzing the family’s situation, a judge will grant parents a specific type of custody according to what he or she thinks is suitable.
Judges and courts will consider the following for child custody agreements:
- Which parent is the most involved in the child’s daily life
- The age of the child
- Where both parents live
- The stability of the parents’ household
- What the child wants, if age-appropriate
What Are the Different Types of Child Custody?
In Massachusetts, there are four different types of child custody plans that a judge can grant a parent after analyzing influencing factors. The child custody plans that you might be granted include:
- Legal Custody: This custody is when one or both parents get to provide input on how the child should be raised.
- Physical Custody: The parent granted physical custody will be where the child primarily lives. Parents can share physical custody if they arrange for their child to alternate homes.
- Joint Custody: This custody is when both parents share either physical custody or legal custody. In some cases, one parent can have sole physical custody but joint legal custody.
- Sole Custody: This is when only one parent has full custody of the child. However, the court can still grant the other parent visitation rights.
