Takeaway: While states differ in the way they approach arranging child custody, the best interest of the child is always viewed as the priority.
Child custody is a very emotional and sensitive issue. In most cases, although not all, child custody battles are a result of divorce. The parents are dealing with the breakup of their marriage at the same time as they are fighting for the right to have custody of their child. This can create a bitter situation.
