When determining child custody arrangements during a divorce, Canadian law firms consider several factors to ensure the best interests of the child are prioritized. Here are some typical factors that may be taken into account:

  1. Child's Best Interests: The primary consideration is always the child's well-being and what arrangement would be in their best interests. This includes factors such as the child's age, physical and emotional needs, and any special requirements.
  2. Parent-Child Relationship: The quality of the relationship between each parent and the child is crucial. Law firms assess the level of involvement, bonding, and ability to meet the child's needs exhibited by each parent.
  3. Parental Fitness: The physical and mental health of each parent is evaluated to determine their ability to provide a safe and stable environment for the child. Any history of abuse, neglect, or substance abuse may also be considered.
  4. Parental Preference: The wishes of the parents, as well as the child if they are of an appropriate age, may be taken into consideration. However, the preferences of the child are typically given more weight as they get older.
  5. Parental Cooperation: Law firms assess the willingness of each parent to cooperate and encourage a healthy co-parenting relationship. The ability to communicate effectively and make joint decisions in the child's best interests is considered.
  6. Continuity and Stability: The law firms may consider the child's existing routine, school, community ties, and overall stability when determining custody arrangements. Maintaining continuity in the child's life may be considered important.
  7. Sibling Relationships: If the child has siblings, law firms may consider the importance of maintaining those relationships when determining custody arrangements.
  8. Parental Proximity: The geographical proximity of each parent's residence and its impact on the child's ability to maintain regular and meaningful contact with both parents may be considered.

It's important to note that these factors are not exhaustive, and the weight given to each factor may vary depending on the specific circumstances of the case. Canadians law firms aim to create custody arrangements that promote the child's well-being and ensure a healthy and nurturing environment.
