Unsuitability of Care

An important factor that can influence child custody cases is the suitability of each of the parent and their living situations. Complications can arise from a variety of factors, such as:

  • Adoption
  • Abuse by anyone who may be around the child
  • Remarriage of former spouses
  • Inhospitable living environments, including relocating parents
  • Mental illness in parents
  • Parental dependence on alcohol or drugs
  • Criminal history in guardians
