How Does Child Custody Work in New York?

In New York, the best interests of the child are the main concern when determining orders of custody. When determining what type of arrangement is best for the children involved, the court will consider the following:

  • Current living situations
  • Parenting abilities of each parent
  • Physical and mental health of each parent
  • Each parent's work schedule
  • Current childcare arrangements
  • The ability of each parent to foster a positive relationship between the child and the other parent
  • Each parent's financial resources

Creating a Parenting Plan That Fits Your Life

Strong orders of custody and visitation should be enforceable whether you are awarded primary custody or visitation. This means that you and your child's other parent should be able to uphold the custody plan without extreme difficulty. At our law firm, we take the time to understand your day-to-day life—including your work schedule, family dynamics, and other commitments—so we can craft a parenting plan that makes sense for you. We can save you money in the future by getting your agreement correct now.

When Can I Modify Child Custody?

Change is a fact of life. When circumstances change, your child custody plan may need to be modified to reflect those changes. Our child custody and visitation lawyers in Queens can help you modify your parenting plan to match the reality of your life. Our divorce attorneys handle custody modifications related to parental relocation, a change in the needs of the child, paternity matters, and other issues.
