How Does A Judge Determine Custody?

Ultimately, most child custody orders in Arkansas are determined by the court. While co-parents who agree on a custody arrangement often have quick approval, the courts still review every proposal to ensure your child is safe, healthy and well cared for. A judge considers a variety of factors when making child custody decisions, including:

  • Who the child prefers to live with
  • Each parent’s home environment
  • The parents’ work schedules
  • Any history of drug or alcohol abuse

We’ll develop a strong argument that outlines why the best place for your child is with you.
