For couples going through a divorce, it is usually always desirable to aim for joint custody arrangements so that their children can continue to have healthy relationships with both parents. Taking into account the unique circumstances of each case, a judge will decide how living arrangements and visitation schedules are to be made, as well as any other details pertaining to the time-share that are in the best interests of the child.

Child Custody Arrangements

undefinedThere are two different types of custody arrangements that Tennessee parents will need to discuss. These are physical custody (where the child will actually reside) and legal custody (which parent has the right to make decisions on behalf of a minor child.)

Not all custody arrangements are one-sided.

While some divorces may give one parent sole legal and physical custody, more and more parents are opting to work together for the sake of their children in a joint custody arrangement.

Not all joint custody cases are a 50/50 split. Instead, many custody cases involve a primary custodian. The other parent may receive a shorter amount of time with the children, but are still considered a custodian.

When determining custody arrangements, a judge will consider:

  • The stability of the family unit
  • The reasonable preference of a child over the age of 12
  • The mental and physical health of both parents
  • Any instances of domestic violence or abuse to a child or spouse
  • The love, affection, and emotional ties of each parent to the child
  • The length of time the child has lived in a stable environment
  • Each parent's willingness to allow the child time with the other parent
  • he character and behavior of any persons who live or visit each parent's home
  • Each parent's potential performance of parenting duties
