Child Custody Factor: Ability of Parents To Provide A Consistent Routine For The Child

CHILD CUSTODY SERIES: 20 Factors A Judge Must Consider When Determining Issues of Parental Responsibility and Time-Sharing

The eleventh factor to consider is:
(k) “The demonstrated capacity and disposition of each parent to provide a consistent routine for the child, such as discipline, and daily schedules for homework, meals, and bedtime.”

This factor takes into consideration whether the parents are able to provide consistency and discipline for the child in their daily life.

For example, if one parent’s work requires frequent travel and an inconsistent schedule, a Judge may consider this less favorably when it comes to time-sharing and parental responsibility.

Whereas, a parent whose work schedule is more regular can more easily provide their child with consistency and a regular daily routine.

Providing a child with a regular daily routine that is generally consistent from day to day is in the best interest of the child, and is therefore favored by the court.
