When considering child custody, the Family Court must choose custody based on the best interest of the child. Often, the best interest of the child is a difficult standard to define. The Court will consider a number of factors when assessing the best interest of the child such as the overall character of the parents, the choice of the child (if of appropriate age), the religion of the parents, immoral conduct of one parent, financial resources, stability of the home, etc. There is no absolute test, and it is important to talk to a family law attorney when facing a custody issue.
