How New York courts determine the best interests of a child

There is no fixed definition for the legal principle known as the best interests of a child when the court is deciding on child custody in a divorce case. However, the best interests are generally regarded as the actions and services that best ensure that a child is well taken care of in a healthy and secure environment. This is determined by considering a wealth of factors based on the child's and parents' circumstances.
