High Point Child Custody Factors

The High Point child custody courts consider many different factors and criteria when determining custody of a child. These factors can vary depending on the judge and the details of the case, but there is a common theme to all High Point child custody decisions, the best interests for the child. The court will consider living conditions of both parents, their employment history, criminal records, drug and alcohol use and medical history, just to name a few of the factors.

  • Who has been the Primary Caregiver.

  • History of criminal behavior.

  • Who can provide a stable home environment.

High Point Child Custody Types

The High Point child custody courts will review the factors related to child custody and then determine the custody arrangements based upon the best interest of the minor child. There are two main types of High Point Child Custody: Legal Custody and Physical Custody.

  • Legal Custody: Who makes custody decisions for the minor child on issues of education, health, and religion

  • Physical Custody: Who does the minor child live with and spend time with.
