Typical factors to determine the best interest of the child in many Massachusetts divorce cases are:
- Child’s age and health
- Health of the parents
- Stability and lifestyle of the parents
- Child’s adjustment to the community and school
- Parents’ ability to provide for the child’s needs
- Relationship the child has with each parent
- Any disabilities of the child or parents
- Child’s preference, if he or she is an appropriate age to voice a preference
If the divorce court considers a child’s preference, it must decide whether the child’s preference is in his or her best interests.
