In most custody cases in Massachusetts, both the mother and the father are generally good parents who can take care of their children. So, sometimes it could be a difficult decision for the judge to decide who would get the custody. Thus, the factors that are used to decide the case are generally for the best interests of the child.
So here is a list of some of the questions the judge have to evaluate when considering custody:
- Which parent had a more amicable relationship with children?
- Which parent works more hours?
- Which parent has enough financial support for the children after a divorce
Which parent took the time to take care of the children such as preparing food, bathing the children
Of course, there are other factors and circumstances that might impact the judge’s final decision.
