The likely effect on the child of any change in the child's circumstances, including the likely effect on the child of any separation from a care-giver or person, with whom the child has been living, Therefore, the fact that he was living with you for a period of time will be taken into account should the maternal family request that the child live with them. Also, the attachment to his step brother will be taken into account. You did not mention the child's age, the court will also take his views at heart when a decision needs to be made.
