How Does Child Custody Work In New York?
In New York, the best interests of the child are the main concern when determining a custody agreement. When determining what type of arrangement is best for the children involved, the court will consider the following:
- Parenting abilities of each parent
- Each parent’s financial resources
- Physical and mental health of each parent
- Current living situations
- Each parent’s work schedule
- Current child care arrangements
- Whether each parent is able to foster a positive relationship between the child and the other parent
Creating A Parenting Plan That Fits Your Life
A strong child custody plan 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 right now.
