During a child custody hearing or trial to determine custody and conservatorship issues, many factors are considered by the Court. Some of these factors include in determining a parenting plan include: which parent is the primary caregiver, the status quo of child care arrangements, the history of visitation, substance abuse, mental health issues, any history of domestic violence or other criminal history, the work schedules of the parents, the general employment situation of each parent, how the children are performing in school and other developmental issues, the current living arrangements of each parent and the behavioral history of each parent.
