When a child custody case is brought to the court, the court will try to accommodate the best interest of the child and choose the environment that offers the most stability.

Some factors courts will take into consideration during a divorce that includes child custody are:

• The child's age, sex, and mental and physical health
• The parent's mental and physical health
• The parent's lifestyle
• Any history of child abuse
• The emotional bond between the parent and child
• The parent's ability to provide the child with food, shelter, clothing, and medical care
• The child's regular routine
• The quality of the child's education
• The child's preference, if the child is above a certain age (this is usually around age 12)
• The ability and willingness of the parent to encourage communication and contact between the child and the other parent

The court may also conduct a Child Custody Evaluation. An evaluation usually consists of interviews, psychological exams, and analysis of the children, and perhaps the parents.

• The court has the ability to deny a parent’s request for an evaluation.
• Parents may be liable for the cost of the evaluation.

TESTIMONIALS

Sarah

After meeting with several divorce attorneys, I was referred to Carmen Rojo by a good friend. My divorce case was quite complex and until I met Carmen, I was not comfortable.  Carmen is experienced, knowledgeable, caring, and treated my case as if it were her own. I had constant communication with her on nights, weekends and holidays if I needed her. As difficult as my case was, the outcome for me was spectacular. I don't have words to express my thanks to Carmen for everything she has done for me and I will be forever grateful!
