How is custody determined in a divorce?

When parents separate or file for divorce in Minnesota, children are often the unwilling participants of the separation as well. In most cases, small children do not have a say as to which parent they would prefer to live with. Instead, the court may determine what is best for the child and order child custody accordingly. You may also design your own child custody schedule through mediation. Whatever the case may be, there are certain factors considered when choosing what type of custody is best for your child. 

Shared parenting can provide stability for your children

As you weigh your options for continuing to parent your children even though you are divorcing your spouse, remember that what works for other families you know who have gone through a divorce, may not be as functional for you. Take your time in developing and refining the agreement you and your spouse make to find an arrangement that is beneficial to everyone involved. At Dittrich Law Firm, P.A., we have been able to help many individuals in Minnesota to work through a divorce.
