Turn to a Compassionate, Caring, and Respectful Child Custody Lawyer in NYC to Help with Child Custody Arrangements

Agreeing upon the best child custody arrangement is often the most contested and emotionally difficult part of a divorce. Top child custody lawyers are able to work with clients in a compassionate manner while helping you achieve your ideal outcome.

The family court in NYC will do what is in the best interests of the children and will look at a number of factors when determining custody arrangements, including which parent has been the primary caregiver, the strength of their parenting skills, the health of the parents and the children, parental work schedules, siblings or extended family relationships, and the desires of the children. It is the responsibility of your lawyer to help prove that you are a reliable parent.

Arrange Appropriate Child Custody in New York with a Family Law Attorney Who Will Fight for What You Want

Helping with Your Case

Legal custody of a child involves the right and responsibility to make decisions for them, and residential or physical child custody involves where the child will live.

In a sole custody arrangement, just one parent has the right to make major decisions for the child. Joint custody means that both parents make major decisions about the most important areas of the child’s life. This includes decisions about schools, religion, and health. Other, less important decisions are made by the parent who is physically caring for the child at that particular time. Your lawyer will help you fight for the type of custody you desire.

Usually, this is accomplished by having the non-custodial parent pay support to the custodial parent, but it can quickly turn into a complicated process that must be handled by a lawyer who is highly experienced in dealing with family court.
