How Domestic Violence Accusations Can Impact A Child Custody Order

Last updated on June 24, 2022

As part of their commitment to seeing that all custody agreements accommodate the best interests of the children first, the New York courts put a strong focus on the fitness of a parent and his or her ability to provide adequate care for the children. When there has been a history of domestic violence, even if it never involved the children, it can greatly influence the courts’ decisions about awarding parenting time.

Whether you are the parent who is trying to protect your children from the possibility of abuse, or you are the parent who is being accused of domestic violence, it is important that you have strong representation from an experienced lawyer who will fight to protect your interests and the interests of your children.
