How the child’s best interests are determined

When it comes to dissolving a marriage or ending a relationship, often the most difficult aspect is determining what to do with the children. Whether you have been together for a few years or a few decades, the thought of losing custody of the children can be overwhelming. We at the Law Firm of Chris E Ragano fight for the rights of our clients to ensure that they are treated fairly and awarded the custody they deserve.


Florida courts will ensure that the best interests of the child are met, which is why it is important for you to know what factors they use to determine this.


In order to determine which household will provide the best atmosphere for parenting, court officials will evaluate the safety and emotional support found within each. Your child’s emotional well-being plays a large role in this decision.


It is also important to realize that Florida courts realize that gender should not be a determinant in which parent gets custody. While some states favor one parent over the other, you will each be given equal consideration in this state. In fact, the court will make every effort to approve a parenting plan that gives both parents equal time with and custody of the child.


If you believe that it would be in the child’s best interest to spend more time with you than with the other parent, it is up to you to prove this in court. More information about parenting and custody issues is available on our web page.
