Factors Considered in an Idaho Child Custody Case
Every child custody case is unique, and there is no one-size-fits-all solution to a child custody agreement.
Ultimately, it will be up to the Idaho courts to make the final decision in a child custody case based on the child’s best interests. Some of the factors that will be considered to determine the best interests of the child include:
- each parent’s wishes
- the child’s wishes (in certain instances)
- the relationship between the child and their parents and siblings
- the relationship between the child and their surroundings (community, home, school, etc.)
- circumstances and character of all parties involved in the case
- the promotion of stability and continuity for the child
- any evidence of domestic violence
What to Expect from a Boise Child Custody Case
Although the courts will make the final determination in a child custody case, parents are always encouraged to come up with their own child custody agreement for approval. Often, both parties are more likely to secure a satisfactory resolution when the parents negotiate the child custody arrangement rather than relying on the court.
