When determining child custody and visitation matters (parental responsibilities), either during or after a divorce or for unmarried parents, the courts will decide decision-making and parenting time issues based on the best interests of the child. What is in a child’s best interest may not be easily determined. There are many factors the court will consider. The court may choose to order joint or sole decision-making. The use of experts (often times mental health professionals) may be employed to assist the court in determining the best interests of the children. In these situations, an experienced lawyer can explain the process and guide you through to a favorable outcome.
