What factors must be considered in determining whether a child is in the best interests of the children?

Nova Scotia, Canada


The following excerpt is from Wood v. McGrath, 2009 NSSC 384 (CanLII):

Having found a material change in circumstances I must embark on a fresh inquiry into what is in the best interests of the children. While Gordon v. Goertz sets out factors to consider, a determination of whether the move is in the best interests of the children must be made on the particular facts of each case. No two cases are the same.
