Child Custody Factor: Performance of The Child at Home, School and In The Community

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

The eighth factor to consider is:
(h) “The home, school, and community record of the child.”

This factor takes into consideration how the child is currently performing in school, at home, and within their community and whether changing their environment will be beneficial or detrimental to the child’s performance and well-being.

For example, if a child is performing very well in their current environment and a parent is requesting to uproot their child and move them to a new, less desirable environment when the parents separate, a Judge would most likely look at this as detrimental to the child when considering time-sharing and parental responsibility.

Time-sharing and parental responsibility decisions must be made with consideration of keeping the child in the best possible environment so the child has the best chance of thriving and performing well.
