Child custody and financial instability

On Behalf of | Mar 14, 2018 | Child Custody & Visitation

When it comes to child custody decisions, there are a plethora of factors that courts will review. For example, the court may consider a child’s relationship with each parent and other factors that will be used to determine which outcome would serve the best interests of a child. However, there are other factors that could have an impact on a custody ruling, such as a parent’s financial circumstances. For parents, divorce can bring many changes in life and even problems, in some instances, but it is essential to be prepared for custody hearings and other critical issues.

A parent may face financial hardships for various reasons. For example, they may be worried about becoming homeless because they have lost their source of income. However, there are other factors that can impact a parent’s ability to have custody of their child with respect to homelessness, such as domestic violence. Sometimes, the end of marriage can upend a person’s life in many ways and affect their employment and financial well-being.

If you are facing serious financial problems which could affect your living situation, it is especially important to try to address these concerns if you think they may have an impact on child custody. There are many factors that will be taken into consideration with regard to the best interests of a child and you should do all you can to pursue an outcome that is healthy for you and your child.
