Child Custody Factor: Parents’ Ability To Protect The Child From Divorce Proceedings

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

The eighteenth factor to consider is:
(r) “The capacity and disposition of each parent to protect the child from the ongoing litigation as demonstrated by not discussing the litigation with the child, not sharing documents or electronic media related to the litigation with the child, and refraining from disparaging comments about the other parent to the child.”

In order to protect the child’s emotional well-being, both parents must make an effort to shelter the child from any antagonism and ill feeling as much as possible during the litigation process.

The court will consider the parents’ conduct with regards to this as a factor when deciding on parental responsibility and time-sharing.

Parents must refrain from speaking badly about the other parent in the presence of the child, and any discussions regarding parental disputes and custody issues should remain as limited as possible.
