Every state has its own laws and so do South Carolina.
In South Carolina child custody laws, child custody and visitation are determined on the basis of the best interests of the child.
They consider diverse factors to determine the child custody, including:
- The willingness of the child to stay with the parent.
- The willingness of the parents to become the custodian.
- Co-parents ability to establish meaningful relationship with the other and the siblings.
- Physical and mental health of both the Co-parents.
- The ability of the child to adjust to the surrounding communities and school.
- Evidences of physical or sexual abuse, if any.
