Ensuring the Best Interests of the Child

Get our Daytona Beach divorce lawyers on your side!

Children are sensitive to divorce and courts realize this, doing everything they can to act in the child's best interests. Custody and visitation arrangements are all made based on this assumption, but many times what you believe and what the court believes are two entirely different things.

No one knows your child better than you do. Our firm respects this by offering representation based on your needs and desires. As the court attempts to make decisions with your child's best interests in mind, give yourself an extra measure of security by hiring our Daytona Beach divorce lawyers. The future of your child is on the line and it never hurts to be prepared.

What does the court consider before making a decision?

The court goes through a lengthy process prior to cementing any child custody and visitation orders. Not only do they consider the past, they assess each parent's current circumstances and how this will affect the child in the future.

The child's best interests are based on the following factors:

  • The mental and physical health of each parent
  • The ability of each parent to care for the child financially
  • The child's relationship with their parents
  • The child's home and school record
  • Patterns of abuse
  • Reasonable preference of the child
  • Emotional needs of the child

Because the court's decision can have a lasting impact on your relationship with your child, it is crucial that you demonstrate your ability and desire to care for your child, regardless of any outside factors.
