Act 37 – Requirements for “best-interest” in physical placement

Act 37 requires that if a court grants less than 25% of physical placement to one parent in a temporary or final order, there must be a specific finding of facts as to the reasoning why a greater amount of placement with the lesser placement time parent is not in the child’s best interest. It also reorganizes the “best-interest” factors to remove “stability in placement” and “availability of child care services,” also specifying that the factors are not listed in order of importance.
