In addition to hiring a lawyer, both parents must attend a mediation appointment
through the court's Child Custody Recommending Counseling. It is not
often the court will involve a minor child in the process, however children
may be interviewed by a court mediator or have an attorney appointed to

The court works to consider what is in the best interest of the child at

- Which parent the child has a stronger relationship with
- The distance between the homes of each parent
- The financial assets, income, and ability to provide of each parent
