Protecting You and Your Child's Best Interests - Call (888) 209-7080

Fairly Dividing Custody Between ExesIf you are going through a divorce or legal separation, you may be worried about the future of you children. It can be a big source of anxiety to think of where they might live after the divorce is finalized. Wanting what's best for your child is a part of being a parent, which means child custody matters can often be complicated by both parents viewing matters differently.

If your spouse does not want to compromise, we are always ready to go to court on your behalf.

We have 20+ years' experience. Contact us at (888) 209-7080 to speak with a Framingham child custody lawyer for a case review!

What Factors Does the Court Consider?

During the divorce process, the court will almost always try to make choices that will be best for the children involved. In most cases, this means preserving a way of life that your child is familiar with and keeping as much regularity as possible. The court will seek to preserve all the major elements of their life when possible, such as school, family relationships, and other matters.

Other factors the courts will examine when deciding custody include:

  • If the child can stay in the same home
  • The mental and physical health of the parents
  • The child's living patterns and routines
  • The financial situation of both parents
  • If there is any history of substance abuse with either parent
  • How much time and care can regularly be given to the child
  • Their preferences (depending on their age)

What Is the "Best Interests of the Child"?

    Our children come first. Some require more than others. A divorce is disruptive to everyone but affects children particularly, who are still in the stages of growth, learning and development. The notion of “best interests” is merely to avoid unsettling the child’s foundation. Therefore, all of the decisions made are meant to encourage and continue fostering the child’s growth, happiness, mental and emotional health, and development.

    Ideally, we would want the children to continue having a trusting, loving relationship with both of their parents. This may not always be possible, as every family situation will differ from others. In cases of domestic violence in the home, we would want to protect all family members from the damaging effects that abuse brings.
