Is Missouri a 50 50 Custody State?

Missouri is considered a 50-50 state for child custody. A judge must give both parents an equal chance at possession. Missouri law grants both parents an equal opportunity to obtain joint legal or sole custody.

However, it is not guaranteed that the child's parents will get similar custody after a divorce or separation. Courts make decisions in the interest of the child.

What if my spouse and I cannot agree on a custody arrangement?

If you and your former spouse cannot agree on a custody plan, the family court will intervene and act on your behalf. A family law judge will look at several factors in order to determine what the best child custody plan is for your entire family and make the decision for you and your former spouse.

The court will take the following factors into consideration:

  • Proposed parenting plans
  • The needs of the child for frequent, continued, and meaningful relationships with both parents
  • The ability of parents to perform their functions as mother and father
  • The interaction of the child with parents, siblings, and other friends or family members
  • The child's adjustment to a new home, school, or community
  • The mental and physical conditions of all individuals involved
  • The intention of either parent to relocate the primary residence of the child
  • In some custody cases, the wishes of the child

The family court's goal is to provide the child with the best possible means of remaining actively involved with both parents. What is in the best interest of your child may end up being left to the discretion of a judge who knows little to nothing about your child, your family, and your unique situation.
