Custody of the Children in Vermont

When deciding the custody of a child, the Vermont courts strive to serve the best interests of the child while interfering as little as possible with the requests of the parents. As such, they recognize that in many cases, if both parents are involved in the childs’ upbringing, their childhood will be more balanced. The court usually recognizes any agreement made by the parents in regards to both legal and physical custody. But the court does not typically award joint responsibility in contested situations. Coming to an agreement, even if mediation is required, without involving the court is usually the best option.
