Child Custody Lawyer in Prior Lake, MN Serving the South Metro
One of the biggest questions with divorce or unmarried co-parents is, “Who gets custody of the kids?”
By law, custody is supposed to be determined by the best interests of the children according to a 12-factor analysis. However, reality often plays out differently.
The Harsh Realities of Child Custody Law
- Custody is frequently given to the “least alienating” parent, which takes into account the presence of siblings and proximity to a support system.
- Child support is determined based on who keeps the children overnight, which is unfair to a parent who has an overnight shift at work.
- The best parent does not always get full custody. An okay-ish parent will get to take advantage of presumptions.
