How Is Custody Awarded in Connecticut?
There are two forms of child custody: legal and physical. Legal refers
to the parents’ ability to make decisions for their child, while
physical determines which parent the child lives with. A court can award
joint or sole custody based on the circumstances.
The court considers the following factors before awarding custody:
- The stability of each parent’s home
- The child’s relationship with both parents
- Need of the child
- Each parent’s ability to be involved in the child’s life
- The parents’ wishes for custody
- The financial resources of each parent
If one parent is given more significant custody rights, the other parent
will typically receive visitation rights. This means that they are allowed
to visit the child on specific days and for predetermined amounts of time.
Because family dynamics are always changing, custody orders can be modified
under the supervision and discretion of the court.
