How Is Child Custody Determined in a Divorce Case?

Listen as Kissimmee divorce attorney, Linda Gruszynski discusses how the court determines child custody in response to a divorce in Florida. 

One of the key factors the court will consider when making this determination is which parent will most likely encourage the child to have a strong relationship with the other parent.  

Other factors they will consider include the past involvement of each parent.  For example, who takes the child to events, assists them with their schoolwork, takes them to medical appointments and covers their bills?  Each of these points may influence the court in a given parent’s favor.  Watch the video to learn more.

Linda was an exceptional lawyer. This was a divorce from (Hell) and was drug out over more than a year. My Ex's lawyer actually quit. Linda was very professional yet had a really personal touch. She actually felt like a friend through this. I really am glad I chose your law firm and would recommend you to others, especially Linda.
