Representing New York clients faced with child custody issues

When children’s lives are involved in a divorce or separation, an already complicated matter has the potential to escalate into a heated and contested situation. In many contested cases, each party believes that they are entitled to see the child more. Whether one party spends more time with the child as the other works or one believes that their hard work and hours away from the home entitles them to more time with their child, a divorcing couple’s battle will be fueled by a future where they will ultimately have to share their parenting time with the other. Unless either party is deemed “unfit” by the court, both parents have the right to ongoing and regular access to the child as it fits with the philosophy to act in the best interests of the children.

Sole and Joint Custody

Sole and joint custody generally detail the child custody arrangement. Sole custody is a rarity. If a court believes that one party is “unfit” to parent, the judge may award the other with sole custody, giving them full control over the child’s future. There are many reasons that a person would get sole custody, but most cases will end in some kind of joint custody arrangement.

Physical and Legal Custody

When a court decides on the best joint custody arrangement to suit a child’s life, legal and physical custody are usually addressed. Physical custody, also known as residential custody, details where the child spends more of their time per week. The parent who is awarded physical custody may be referred to as the custodial parent or the primary caretaker. In some exceptional cases, the parents can work together to split the time equally. Legal custody is a much more important matter for non-custodial parents.  Legal custody allows for a parent or parents to make significant decisions about school, medical care, religion, and social matters.
