Abstract

The doctrine of "best interests of the child"has guided courts in determining post-divorce child custody cases in Taiwan since the amendment of the Taiwan Civil Code in 1996, which overturned previous patriarchal practices at least as a matter of law. Previous empirical studies have adopted descriptive statistics in analyzing court cases to determine which factors, as set out in Article 1055-1, are the ones judges tend to consider. However, these approaches do not clarify which factors judges consider primary.
