It is not always an easy thing when parents discover that they are too different from each other hence the only remaining option is to separate or get divorced. However, one more thing that is, even more, difficult for the parents to face is the establishment of the child’s custody as well as arrangements for visitation. The court’s decision regarding child custody will at all times be based on the best interest of the child. There are various factors considered while determining a child’s best interest.
In most cases, when CPS investigations involve abuse and negligence accusations, It may be within the child’s best interest that custody is awarded to grant parents or close family members rather than to outsiders.
