How to Prove In Court You Are the Better Parent in a Child Custody Case

by francistaylor childcustody Divorce Coaching
If your ex-spouse is trying to claim that you're an unfit parent, talk to a divorce and child custody lawyer to show the court that you meet the 'better parent standard.

Child Custody "Best Interest" Factors Some factors the court considers include: The child's physical and mental health What the child prefers Each parent's schedule in relation to the time the parent spends with the child The ability of a parent to provide a safe, loving and stable home Historically, how much time each parent has spent on the child, including extracurricular activities, medical and education-related appointments.

Understand the "Better Parent" Standard Many parents go into child custody hearings to seek sole custody.

A judge would be reluctant to deny one parent the chance to care for the child as family court judges know the best chance for the child is to have both parents caring for him/her.

To get sole custody, you have to prove extensively, without attacking the other parent, that you can best care for the child with or without the help of the other parent.

The poor grades of a child while living with the parent trying to get custody can be used to prove the parent is unfit.

What to Avoid During a Child Custody Case If you're trying to prove you're a better parent, avoid these: Withhold parenting or visitation time Always stick to court-ordered parenting time and any other visitation rights - unless the child is in some immediate danger that is real.
