Missouri moving away from traditional concepts of child custody?

Missouri and a few other states are considering legislation that could change the way in which child custody arrangements are made. Current Missouri law (found in Missouri Revised Statutes Section 452.375.1) bases custody on the legal standard of the "best interests of the child," and provides guidance for family court judges making child custody determinations in the form of factors to be considered before custody is set.
