The court allocates parenting time and decision-making based upon the “best interests” factors. Some of these factors include the wishes of the child, the wishes of the parents, and the ability of the parents to place their children’s needs ahead of their own. There is no magic formula involved. The court, at its discretion, considers these factors and determines a parenting schedule. Whether you can get sole custody of your kids will depend on these factors and more importantly, how these factors are presented to the court.
