The sole consideration of the court is the best interest of the child.
When determining what the best interest of the child the court shall consider and set forth specific findings among other things:
- The wishes of the child depending on age and capacity of the child to form an intelligent preference to their custody;
- Which parent will be more likely to allow visitation and a relationship with the noncustodial parent;
- The ability to meet the child’s needs; economically, physically, developmentally, and emotionally;
- The mental and physical health of the parent;
- The level of conflict between parties;
- The ability to have a relationship with siblings; and,
- Any history of parental physical or mental abuse or neglect to that child or their siblings.

- The duration of marriage;
- The income, earning capacity, age and health of each spouse;
- The standard of living during marriage;
- The career before the marriage of the spouse who would receive alimony;
- The existence of the specialized education or training or the level of marketable skills attained by each spouse during the marriage;
- The contribution of either spouse as homemaker;
- The award of property granted by the court in the divorce, other than child support and alimony, to the spouse who would receive alimony; and,
- The physical and mental conditions of each party as it relates to the financial conditions, health and ability to work of that spouse.
