What Do Judges In Buffalo Consider In Child Custody Disputes?

The judge in your Buffalo divorce or family court matter will be focusing on your child’s best interests in your custody dispute.

To this end, the judge will consider factors like the relative bond each parent has with the child and which parent has been the primary caregiver.

Each parent’s ability to promote a positive environment for emotional and intellectual development will also be considered, and which parent provides healthy boundaries for the child.

Elements like income can come into the equation, but in general, a parent who can provide a safe, stable home for a child has a valid claim for custody.

In the vast majority of divorces, both parents would be effective custodial parents, and most custody disputes are settled by the parties without a judge’s intervention.

Protecting your interests in negotiations and litigation is key when custody is in dispute.
