How do courts determine child custody?

Deciding child custody is one of the most difficult and emotional aspects of divorce. Neither parent wants to give up time with their children. That is understandable, but that can make forming a custody agreement very contentious. It is when parents disagree about child custody that courts get involved with the situation.

Courts generally prefer parents to reach an agreement suitable for everyone involved. If the parents cannot agree, the court will begin the procedure outlined in North Carolina law to determine custody.
