Child Custody Attorney Serving McKinney And Allen
When a marriage ends and children are involved, deciding on a custody and visitation scheme often depends on the “best interest” of the child. There can, however, be a good deal of disagreement between parents about what “best interest” actually means. Where there is little or no agreement, the court will decide, taking into consideration such factors as:
- Which parent has been the primary caregiver
- Any history of drug, alcohol, or child abuse
- Financial and social resources
