When determining the allocation of these parental responsibilities, the judges will look at many factors to determine what is in the best interest of the children. These factors include, among other things: the mental and physical health of both the parents and the children; the ability of the parents to cooperate with decision-making for the child; how much each parent participated in the past decision-making for the child; the wishes of the parents; and also the child's needs. The judge really will take all of the relevant situations in each individual case into consideration when making this very important determination.
