How is Child Custody Determined in Iowa?
Child custody orders are determined by several factors based on what is in the best interests of the child or children that are involved. While many child custody issues can be resolved through the collaborative process, negotiation, or mediation, it may become necessary to present the case before a judge due to differing opinions and goals of the parents involved. In these cases, our Des Moines child custody lawyers are ready to advocate for you.
The judge will use the following factors to determine what plan is best for the child(ren):
- What is in the best interests of the child(ren)
- The willingness of each parent to care for the child(ren)
- Any history of abuse, mental health issues, or criminal acts
- Which parent has been the primary caregiver of the child(ren)
