Child Custody Factor: Evidence of Parents’ Dishonesty With Regards To Domestic Violence Or Neglect

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

The fourteenth factor to consider is:
( n ) “Evidence that either parent has knowingly provided false information to the court regarding any prior or pending action regarding domestic violence, sexual violence, child abuse, child abandonment, or child neglect.”

This factor takes into consideration whether there is evidence of either parent being dishonest or trying to hide any prior or pending action regarding:

– domestic violence
– sexual violence
– child abuse
– child abandonment
– child neglect

by either of the parents when determining parental responsibility and time-sharing.

Since the safety and well-being of the child is of utmost importance, the court takes matters of violence or neglect very seriously.

If the court has evidence that either parent is or has been dishonest about, or hiding the truth regarding such matters, that parent’s credibility would be undermined, which would be unfavorable for that parent when determining time-sharing and parental responsibility.
