Matters relating to both legal custody and physical custody of minor children are best determined between the parents. Unfortunately amicable resolutions are not always possible. When Judges resolve custody issues, the Michigan Child Custody Act requires the application of twelve specific factors in determining whether the minor children's best interest are served by awarding custody to the mother or father. There are situations when joint custody is appropriate. The key to successful litigation of custody is preparation.
A custody dispute is frequently the most emotional issue in the entire divorce, yet there is no area which requires more planning and clear thinking. When two parties are both good parents, the ability to persuade the trial judge concerning the factors set forth in Michigan's Child Custody Act favors the party who is best prepared. Experts may testify expressing various opinions, but in final analysis the only opinion which matters is that of the Judge.
