Helping You Navigate Complex Child Custody Disputes

Child custody is often disputed between the parents when they are going through a divorce. To decide these matters, New York courts use what is known as the “best interests of the child standard.” This standard allows the judge to consider any important factors that they deem important and relevant in deciding how to award custody.

The state generally favors having the parents share joint custody unless one of the parties is able to present convincing evidence supporting why one of the parents having a share of the custody would be detrimental to the child.

A parent with full custody has the authority to make all of the decisions regarding the child without the consent of the other parent. If joint custody is granted, then both parents share equal decision-making power for major life decisions like education, religion and medical treatment.
