How to Prove a Child Custody Case, Custody Lawyer Buffalo NY
What is the burden of proof in the initial custody case?
A parent must show that it is in the "best interest of the child" for them to have custody.
What factors does the court consider in determining the best interest of the child?
Does either parent have a better chance of getting custody under the law?
Not in the initial custody case, however the parent who first obtained custody has a better chance of retaining custody unless the non-custodial parent can prove a substantial change in circumstances that warrants a change in custody.
