While historically mothers have more often been awarded custody, fathers can still apply for and be granted full custody if they can demonstrate that it is in the best interest of the child.
The custody of a child is determined based on the child’s best interests. Courts take into account factors such as each parent’s ability to provide for the child, the child’s wishes (depending on their age and maturity) and the child’s emotional and physical well-being.
