There are many factors Moline courts take into account when determining child custody and related issues. In this article, our Moline child custody attorneys discuss these factors and how the courts attempt to weigh these issues into their judgments.
- The wishes of the parents;
- The wishes of the child;
- The interactions and the relationships between the parents and the child;
- The child's adjustment to his or her home, school, and community;
- The mental and physical health of both the parents and the child;
- Whether abuse has occurred either to the child or to any other person;
- Whether the parents have the ability to cooperate;
- The living situation of the parents; and
- Whether either of the parents is a sex offender.
