Below are some common questions regarding Child Custody.
How will the Court decide who gets custody of my child(ren?)
Child custody arrangements are made according to the best interests of the child(ren). The Court will consider twelve factors when determining what custody arrangement is in a child’s best interest. It is important to note that not all factors are given the same weight. Each case is different which means the Court may examine some factors in more depth than others, depending on the circumstances in your case. Every factor will be considered before the Court makes a final decision

Does my child have to appear in Court?
Usually, a child does not have to testify in Court. However, if the child is of a certain age and wants to voice his/her feelings about their parents, then the child may appear at the Friend of the Court or before the judge. Most judges will try to talk with the minor child(ren) in chambers (their private office) rather than during a formal hearing. However, there may be certain instances, for example, if allegations of abuse are disputed, where a child may be required to testify.
The lawyers at Basiga Law Firm recognize how precious your child(ren)is to you. Custody of your child(ren) may be easy to decide between you and the other parent, or it may be a very contentious decision. We can help you put into writing any agreement that you may have reached outside of the Court. Alternatively, if you and the other parent are unable to reach an agreement, our passionate litigation team will tenaciously fight for your rights regarding your child(ren).
