Finding Custody Solutions That Are In The Best Interests Of Your Family

Child custody arrangements are critical decisions that affect the future of your family. In North Carolina, custody is categorized into physical custody, which refers to where the child lives and spends most of their time, and legal custody, granting a parent the right to make important decisions about the child’s life. Custody may be joint or sole, allowing for shared or exclusive custody rights. Third-party custody, child visitation and custody evaluations are also aspects of the process, particularly in complex situations such as when domestic violence may affect custody decisions.

The best interests of the child are always at the heart of custody and visitation determinations. Factors considered by North Carolina courts include:

  • The child’s safety and welfare
  • The child’s relationship with each parent
  • The parent’s ability to provide care and meet the child’s needs
  • The stability of the home environment
  • History of domestic violence or substance abuse
  • The child’s preference, depending on age and maturity

Working with an experienced family law attorney is crucial when seeking the best outcome for your child’s custody. Our lawyers at Spidell Family Law are committed to reaching a resolution that serves the best interest of your child and aligns with your goals as a parent.
