Often child custody matters require the engagement of an expert for a best interest assessment of the parties and the children at issue.  A court may appoint an expert or the parties may consent or agree upon an expert.  

Child custody issues require reviewing where the parties live, where the children attend school, and ultimately what is in the best interests of the children as regards custody and parenting time with the parties.  Past history and the status quo is important in that evaluation.  

The age of the children will be determinative as to whether or not the Court takes into account where the children wish to live and with whom as well.  Generally, until the children are thirteen years of age or older, the Court does not take into account their wishes.
