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.

I was referred to Draper Law by my father in-law after being hit from behind in an auto accident. I didn't realize, at the time, what an important decision I was making by hiring a personal injury attorney to represent me. Charles Draper took the time to explain the process and what I could expect. His professional team was there for me every step of the way through a long, and often complicated, legal experience. I just want to express my sincerest gratitude for all the efforts that were taken by Charlie and his team on my behalf in obtaining a settlement on my case.
