Determining Child Custody And Support

Whether you are divorcing or have a child with an ex-partner, it is typically a good idea to get an agreement on child custody in writing.

It can be highly emotional when trying to divide your time with your children. However, if the two of you can reach an agreement that you both can live with, it will avoid a contentious court experience.

When determining issues of child custody and support family courts will first consider the best interest of a child. Prince Contreras PLLC is a highly experienced law firm in San Antonio that can help you understand your legal options.

What Does A Judge Consider When Looking At A Child's Best Interest?

Judges will look at the facts related to issues, such as:

  • Stability of each parent's home and a child's education
  • Physical and emotional well-being and needs of the child
  • The child's primary caregiver
  • Siblings
  • If 12 or older, who the child prefers to live with at this time
