Q: This is a silly question. I want 50/50 or full custody of my child but I have to write why….but i want what I write to sound good and be compelling. What is the judge looking for? what sounds good from a legal point of view? I’m not a good writer so I can use all the help I can get. Thanks.
A: There are numerous factors you could potentially address – and each would be fact-specific. I’d suggest you check-out my Legal Guide for a review of many of the factors the Court looks at in determining custody: https://www.avvo.com/legal-guides/ugc/what-factors-are-considered-for-child-custody-.
