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 wanted to thank the Draper Law firm for representing me in my recent personal injury case. It was truly a pleasure and honor to work with the firm, and I had a wonderful experience working with the staff, who was very friendly and courteous throughout the entire process.
The quality of legal service more than exceeded my expectations. The attorney answered all my questions, treated me with respect, and explained every detail - every step of the way. This was important to help me understand the process. In fact, I was made to feel like "part of the family" from the very first appointment.
I would definitely recommend the staff of attorneys at Draper Law Office to anyone who is seeking legal services, as I believe they, too, will have a great experience. In addition, should I ever need services again, Draper Law Office will be my first call.
