How will a court consider a parent’s absence due to military duty when deciding which parent gets custody?

When making a decision about which parent gets custodial responsibility, the judge is allowed to consider any significant impact of a parent’s past or possible future deployments on the best interest of the child. However, the court may not consider past or future deployment as the sole factor for determining custodial responsibility.1
