What factors will a judge consider in deciding custody?

The judge will consider any factor that is relevant to promoting the best interests and welfare of the child. While an exhaustive list is impossible, some important factors a judge will consider are: which parent has been the primary caregiver for the child; does either parent have alcohol or substance abuse problems; which parent can provide the most stable living arrangement for the child; which parent will best promote a close, loving relationship between the child and the other parent; and the parent’s availability to care for the child.
