What Is the Child’s Best Interest Standard?

Fairly Dividing Custody Between ExesIn California, parents who cannot reach an agreement about child custody and parenting time will have their matter decided by the court. A judge’s decision is always based on the best interest of the child.

The child’s health, safety, and welfare are of primary importance when determining a custody order. The court will also make a decision that allows the child to benefit from “frequent and continuing contact with both parents.”

A judge may consider several factors when determining the child’s best interest, including:

  • Each parent’s ability to care for the child
  • Each parent’s co-parenting skills
  • If either parent has a criminal record
  • Any history of drug or alcohol abuse
  • Each parent’s emotional and mental stability
  • Evidence domestic violence or child abuse
  • The child’s preference, if he or she is mature enough
