Children well being and best interest would be of paramount concern for the court while deciding about child custody orders. The Family Court has the duty to decide what is in the best interests of the child. If shared custody is in the best interest of the child, then shared custody would be granted.
The child’s emotional, physical and educational needs will be considered and how any changes in their circumstances will affect the child.
The child’s age, gender, characteristics and background will all be a factor in the decision process. The judge or magistrate will want to ensure that the child is safe from any possible harm and the parent has the ability to meet the child’s needs.
However, where either parent poses a risk to the child through alcohol or drug abuse , or any abusive behaviour, then the judge will be unlikely to grant them custody.
Taking any medications would not hamper your joint custody application.
Ifyou need further assistance, please let me know.
