Wyoming child custody laws says, one can file child custody in Wyoming, only if it is the child’s home state.
Upon filing the petition for custody, the judges consider diverse factors to determine the child custody.
- Parent’s willingness and the interaction with the child.
- A parent’s ability to maintain a healthy relationship.
- Issues of domestic violence and child abuse, if any.
- Parent’s age, physical and mental health.
Modifying the custody:
In order to modify an already decided custody order, one needs to file a motion with the court.
There should be a substantial reason supporting the petition in order to obtain a modification.
