The Modern Approach To Child Custody
Over time, the majority of American jurisdictions, have abandoned the Tender Year’s Doctrine. Today, the courts presume that both biological parents are equally capable of caring for the child, eliminating any gender-based bias in custody decisions. This shift has given rise to the concept of joint custody, encompassing both legal and physical aspects.
The Primary Care Giver Doctrine
The Primary Care Giver Doctrine is a modern approach that leans towards awarding custody to the parent who served as the child's primary caregiver prior to the divorce proceedings. Several factors contribute to this determination, such as which parent put the children to bed, made medical decisions, taught the children essential life skills, and more. While this doctrine is not authoritative in most states. these factors significantly influence the court's decision regarding what serves the best interests of the child.
Best Interest Of The Child
