Understanding Child Custody in Connecticut
In Connecticut, the state’s ‘Best Interests of the Child’ legal standard governs child custody issues. Essentially, this means that Connecticut family law courts make child custody decisions based on their view of what will be best for the child. To figure out which custody arrangement is best for the child, state family law courts use a comprehensive analysis. Courts will consider everything from the child’s physical safety and psychological health to their emotional well-being and social development. The specific factors that courts consider include:
- The developmental needs of the child in question;
- Each parent’s capacity to provide a healthy, stable environment;
- Each parent’s past relationship with the child;
- Any history of adverse information, including domestic violence or substance abuse; and
- Any other factors that the court deems relevant to reach the best resolution.
