Factors that contribute to a strong custody case

Child custody cases are very serious matters. The way in which parents present themselves is crucial.

If you are facing a custody battle, it is important that you understand what it entails. A few key factors can contribute to creating a strong custody case.

Fitness

At the end of the day, the court will attempt to make a decision in the best interest of the child. Therefore, the judge will examine how fit each parent is to care for the child then make a determination in accordance with the custody laws. You should strive to show that you are well on all levels: physically, mentally, financially and emotionally. You should also be able to show how you can provide the necessary love, support and stability for the child.

Visibility

Caring for a child's emotional well-being is just as important as the physical. Attending extra-curricular activities and parent-teacher conferences is a great way for you to show your commitment to your child's complete development. Being present and visible can greatly help your custody case.

Cooperation

The courts usually encourage both parents being in a child's life, so if you and your ex can work together to co-parent, the courts will usually let the two of you take the lead. Co-parenting effectively requires both parents' cooperation and willingness to communicate and come to an agreement. If you are able to come to an agreement, it will allow you and the other parent to maintain control of the situation and cultivate an amicable arrangement for the child. However, if you cannot agree and the court must intervene, your willingness to try to work together may show favorably in the eyes of the court.

These are a few of the main factors that contribute to a custody case. If you are seeking a custody agreement, it may be beneficial to speak with a knowledgeable attorney to determine the best course of action.
