Custody of Child

What is Child Custody?

Child custody pertains to the practical and legal relationship between a parent and his child, which includes caring and making decisions for the child. Child custody is a prevalent issue in divorces and annulments.

Who Decides?

Usually, parents with children under 18 years old will be required to file for custody in case of divorce or annulment. In case of a divorce, the court will determine which parent or guardian gets child custody.

Who Gets Custody?

Child custody is determined on the basis of what the court perceives to be 'in the best interests' of the child. The court will weigh which parent will provide for the child's needs better. In child custody decisions, these factors are considered:

  • The child’s age and gender
  • The wishes of parents
  • The child's wishes, if he or she is old enough to express an independent opinion
  • Wrongful Restraint
  • Conduct of both spouses
  • Racial and cultural background
  • Customs
  • Medical factors
