After parting ways with the opposite parent of your child, the local court of jurisdiction will handle matters of child custody. As it stands, if a couple has children together, the couple retains joint guardianship over that child. Each partner is also granted equal parental rights. In the event of separation, each parent reserves an equal right to the custody of his or her child.
This is where Andrea Dolan Bouchard Family Law steps in. The court will consider “the best interests of the child” when determining where to place your son or daughter. Their decision will incorporate the wishes of each parent, the wishes of the child, and the child’s relationship with each of the parents and siblings. Additionally, a judge will consider the comfort of your home, school, and community, as well as the mental and physical health of each parent.
