Wyoming Child Custody Laws

Wyoming Child Custody

Wyoming child custody is based upon the best interests of the child. Child custody will be awarded according to what appears to be most expedient and beneficial for the well-being of the child. Factors to be considered by a Wyoming Court are: 
  • the child's wishes; 

  • the relative competency of both parents; 

  • any evidence of spousal or child abuse or violence.

 If both parents are considered fit, a Wyoming court may order any custody arrangement that encourages the parents to share in the rights and responsibilities of child rearing.
