The Best Interests of the Child
This term is the key to resolving child custody and visitation issues. When parents are unable to negotiate a custody and visitation arrangement between themselves, a judge in family court will be tasked with making a ruling that represents the best interest of the child. The judge will consider a number of factors, including the child's needs, the parenting abilities of the parents and the previous parenting arrangement.
A non-custodial parent will usually be granted standard visitation. For example, visitation may include every other weekend, alternating holidays and visitation time during school holiday breaks. In most cases, it is in the best interest of parents to reach an agreement outside of court; as long as their agreement is deemed to be in the best interest of the child, the judge is likely to approve any agreement parents reach.
