Child Custody Attorneys in Lake Norman

Awarding Child Custody & Visitation

When two parents are going through a divorce, one of the most contentious issues to be resolved is child custody. This is because parents understandably want to be the primary caretaker of their child and are often not willing to compromise. However, it is in the best interest of the child for both parents to maintain a relationship with them.

At The McIntosh Law Firm, we understand that the parent-child bond is important, and we will fight for your right to maintain a relationship with your child. Our firm has the experience needed to help you get the custody arrangement that is in the best interest of your child.

How Is Custody Determined?

When determining child custody, the court will first determine if the parents are fit to be the primary caretakers of the child. If they are, the court will then determine which parent is the primary caretaker and which is the secondary one. The court will then decide how much time the child will spend with each parent.

The following are some of the factors the court may consider when determining child custody:

  • Each parent's ability to meet the child's needs
  • The child's needs for physical, emotional, and intellectual needs
  • Each parent's moral fitness
  • The child's relationship with each parent
  • The child's relationship with siblings
  • Each parent's ability to provide a stable home environment
  • The child's adjustment to home, school, and community
  • Each parent's ability to provide financial support for the child
  • Each parent's willingness to encourage a close relationship between the child and the other parent
  • Each parent's ability to provide a safe environment
  • Each parent's ability to provide a consistent environment
  • The child's preference, if of appropriate age
