Understanding Child Custody in New York State

Custody is a broad term that encompasses both decision-making authority for your child and the physical residence of the child. A custody agreement or court decision will impact every aspect of your child’s life, including where they live, their schooling, and their relationship with both parents. Whether you’re seeking primary residential custody, joint custody, or modifications to an existing custody arrangement or parenting plan, our attorneys have the expertise to guide you through the process.

Expert Legal Representation for Custody Matters

Filing a petition for child custody is a complex process that requires careful attention to detail.

We understand the technical requirements of custody petitions and will ensure that your case is presented in the best possible light and the best interests of your child are thoughtfully considered.

Navigating the Legal Process

Once your papers are filed and served, a court appearance will be scheduled where both parties will have the opportunity to present their case.
