When a judge makes decision about child custody and visitation hours he/she usually pays attention to the following factors:

  • Wishes of a child ( the older the child the more attention should be paid to his/her words).
  • Wishes of the parents of a child.
  • Living conditions of each parent.
  • Working hours or schedule of each parent.
  • Ability to raise a child.
  • Age of each parent.
  • Mental health of each parent.
  • Physical health of the parents.
  • Any history of drugs or alcohol addiction.
  • Any history of domestic violence.
  • Any other factors the court may consider as important.
