What Is The “Best Interest” Standard And How Does It Apply To Florida Child Custody Determination?

All final child custody decisions in the State of Florida need to include findings that the judge’s order is in the “best interest” of the children involved.  The determination of whether a decision is in the best interest of a child is made through a judicial analysis of the multiple factors contained in Section 61.13 (c), Florida Statutes.
