There is no specific time limit for awarding custody. Although the court tries to be as expediant as possible for the benefit of all the concerned parties. The time frame depends on factors such as the willingness of the parents to compromise,other persons being allowed to testify on behalf of a parent, or persons with a legal right to submit evidence or objection to the custody petition, and so on.
