We help you negotiate an arrangement that best meets your family's needs.

Types of Child Custody Agreements in Michigan

Child custody agreements can be either sole or joint custody. In a joint custody arrangement, the children spend roughly equal amounts of time with each parent. In a sole custody arrangement, the children live primarily with one parent. A judge's decision in a custody matter is based on the best interests of the child. 

Judges consider many factors, including each parent’s:

  • Ability to meet the child's physical, psychological, and developmental needs.
  • Ability to provide a safe and stable environment.
  • Ability to be a positive and consistent parent.
  • Willingness to cooperate in the parenting process.
  • Willingness to maintain a relationship with the child.

How Is Child Custody Awarded in Michigan?

Michigan law does not specify how custody should be awarded in a divorce case. This decision is up to the judge. The law does set forth certain factors a judge must consider when making this decision. Custody can be awarded to either the mother or father, or it can be awarded to both parents jointly. The court may order custody to be shared on a rotating or weekly basis. Custody can also be awarded to one parent with visitation rights granted to the other parent. The court may also order that the children spend a certain amount of time with one parent and a certain amount of time with the other parent. In addition, the court may order that the parents share certain decision-making responsibilities, such as decisions regarding the children's education and healthcare.

Generally, the court will try to award custody to the parent who is most likely to foster a relationship between the child and the non-custodial parent. However, the court will not make this decision based on this factor alone. The court will also consider the child's best interests.
