How does a South Dakota court determine parental “stability”?

Some of the facts a court looks at to determine “stability” are: (1) the relationship and interaction of the child with the parents, step-parents, siblings and extended families; (2) the child’s adjustment to home, school and community; (3) the parent with whom the child has formed a closer attachment; and (4) continuity.
