Determining custody of children may be one of the most emotional and disputed parts of a divorce.
For most parents, their focus is on their children. The many decisions made on a yearly, monthly, weekly and daily basis are likely for them and their best interests. Thus, when a marriage comes to an end, divorcing parents will base their decisions on their child and children. However, the wishes of each parent along with the needs of the child can often clash. One parent may seek to remain in the family home while the other desires to live closer to their work. This can present some logistical issues, especially if one parent seeks primary custody or there is a greater distance between parents.
