CLARIFYING

   child custody

   This simplification is provided to help litigants get a decent start at understanding child custody, what it involves, it's purpose, and its direction.  

Specifically, three commonly used terms will be expanded upon (slightly) to help guide your understanding of a practice that's far more straight forward than how it seems to be practiced.  These three terms are (i) Court order(s); (ii) "reasonable" standard," and iii) the best interest of the child with a few peripheral comments about related components offered throughout...

Best Interest of the child 

 The term self describes its meaning.  And the Michigan legislature offers a host of factors to litigate in the custody establishing, modification and other contexts and instances.
