What are the best interest factors?

  • The love, affection and other emotional ties existing between the parties involved and the child. 
  • The capacity and disposition of the parties involved to ive the child love, affection and guidance and to continue the education and raising of the child in his or her religion or creed, if any. 
  • The capacity and disposition of the parties involved to provide the child with food, clothing, medical care and other materials.
  • The length of time the child has lived in a stable, satisfactory environment, and the desirability of maintaining continuity. 
  • The permanence as a family unit, of the existing or proposed custodial home or homes. 
  • The moral fitness of the parties involved. 
  • The mental and physical health of the parties involved. 
  • The home, school and community record of the child. 
  • The reasonable preference of the child, if the court considers the child to be of sufficient age to express preference. 
  • The willingness and ability of each of the parties to facilitate and encourage a close and continuing parent-child relationship between the child and the other parent or the child and the parents. A court may not consider negatively for the purposes of this factor any reasonable action taken by a parent to protect a child or that parent from sexual assault or domestic violence by the child's other parent. 
  • Domestic violence, regardless of whether the violence was directed against or witnessed by the child.
