The Child’s Best Interests Standard

After a separation so much of the family dynamic changes, but one thing you want to ensure remains constant is that your children’s best interests are met at every stage.  Allocation of parenting responsibilities determines who has time with the children throughout the year as well as who can make the major decisions in their lives.

Best interest considerations often include: 

  • What do the children want
  • What do the parents want
  • Is there a history of abuse
  • Children’s relationship with parents, siblings, and others
  • Adjustment to environment
  • Physical and mental health of parties and children
  • Ability of parents to encourage sharing of love, affection and contact between the child and the other parent
  • Value systems
  • Location of the parents relative to one another

Ideally, parents will be in agreement about what this allocation looks like, however, when that is not the case, we are here to advocate for what you believe is in your child’s best interests.  Every family and every child has different needs.
