What is in the best interest of your children is the most important factor in any custody case. Many aspects will be considered, including:
- Who acts as primary caregiver,
- How much each parent encourages a relationship with the other parent and extended family,
- History of abuse, drug or alcohol dependence,
- Living situation,
- Educational availability.
Today, shared physical custody is more prevalent, with the recognition that the equalization of parenting time is best for the children. Even in these cases, a structured schedule with some flexibility is necessary so disputes do not arise.
Mrs. Taylor strongly believes that custody should not be decided by courts, as judges do not know your children, as you do. She will work hard to create a Custody agreement that resolves your differences while providing the best environment for the children. If a trial is necessary, she will aggressively pursue your position.
