Delaware Divorce Custody

Most of Delaware courts prefer child custody issues to be settled “outside the court”. 90% child custody matters in divorce are usually settled between the divorcing parents and they also come up with practical parenting plan and visitation rights. However, some divorced couples are unable to arrive at any decision regarding child custody and approach the courts. Child custody laws of Delaware are based on the premise that the best interests of the child should not be compromised at any costs. While awarding child custody be it joint custody or sole custody, courts follow these guidelines: Courts wish to take care of the welfare of the child in all means and would like to ensure that all the comforts of life are bestowed on the child. Thus, such divorce custody cases are settled after careful hearing of both the parents.
