Child Custody is one of the most hotly contested issues in Family Court. It affects thousands of families in South Carolina each year.
When facing a child custody case, it is best to consult a Child Custody Lawyer.
The Court will look at a number of factors in considering what is in the best interest of the child. Some of those factors include (but are not limited to):
- Your child’s preference
- The primary caregiver
- Work schedules
- Character, fitness, attitude and inclinations of each parent
- Third parties around children
- Written agreements between the parties
- Other factors affecting the child’s well-being
If a visitation agreement is not or cannot be made between the parties a Court will order what it deems appropriate. Remember, in almost all instances, custody questions are modifiable.
