Are Mississippi courts more likely to award custody to mothers than to fathers?

In Mississippi, both parties enter the courtroom with equal footing. And the court must take an Albright analysis, which is the case of Albright vs. Albright, to factor in all 12 Albright factors to determine who’s going to be best for the children. The child’s best interest is the paramount concern of the court. So while years ago, the presumption was younger children are better off with their moms, that’s no longer applicable. Today’s families, usually both spouses work. Usually, there’s daycare involved. And so both parties enter the courtroom on equal footing.
