Child Custody Factor: Parents’ Ability To Communicate Effectively With One Another Regarding The Child

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

The twelfth factor to consider is:
(l) “The demonstrated capacity of each parent to communicate with and keep the other parent informed of issues and activities regarding the minor child, and the willingness of each parent to adopt a unified front on all major issues when dealing with the child.”

This factor takes into consideration whether the parents are able to communicate well with one another when it comes to issues involving their child.

For example, it is good if the parents agree to communicate regularly via phone, email or text to keep each other informed about the child’s schooling, daily activities, health and general well-being.

It is also good if parents can show that they can compromise, and when necessary ‘agree to disagree,’ when one parent’s resolution to a problem is more suitable for the child.

It is in the best interest of the child, and therefore favored by the court, for parents to communicate effectively and amicably with regards to their child.
