  • Parental fitness.
  • Sincerity of the parents' requests.
  • Parents' willingness to share custody.
  • Parents' capacity to communicate and make shared decisions.
  • Number of children.
  • Geographic proximity of parents' homes.

  • Demands of parental employment.
  • Relationships of parents with their children.
  • Potential for disruption in the children's school and social lives.
