Victims of domestic violence aren't guaranteed child custody

A family court judge deciding a custody matter is responsible for making decisions that they believe are in the child's best interests. A judge will often take into account a child's age and the bond that the parent and child share in rendering decisions. They may consider a parent's housing situation, financial means and availability of free time as well. Also important is whether either parent has a history of violence or abuse.

What's bird's nest custody and will it work for me?

Contested divorces involve many aspects, not the least of which might be the custody and living arrangements of any minor children. These issues can become a logistical nightmare to sort everything out, which can make some co-parents think outside the box for solutions that best fit their unique family situations.
