When a court is required to make a determination on where a child will live, they must weigh many factors. The court may consider the abilities of the parents to provide the support the child needs, and the limitations the parents may have that will prevent them from being fully available as the child's custodian. The many elements that the court evaluates during the child custody hearing must ultimately support a determination that favors the best interests of the child.
