Domestic Relations – Parent & Child – Custody – Best Interests – Child’s Wishes (access required)

Sheila R. v. David R. Despite misgivings about the appellant-mother’s fitness as a parent, the family court originally gave her custody of the parties’ younger daughter, adopting a “wait and see” approach. Eighteen months later, the family court conducted a thorough best-interests analysis, considered the totality of the circumstances before it and properly awarded sole custody of the younger daughter to the respondent-father, with liberal visitation for the mother. We affirm the family court’s custody orders.
