Eiges & Orgel, PLLC: Protecting Your Parental Rights

Divorce can become more complicated when children are involved. Most likely, both you and your spouse want what is best for your children. While it may be somewhat easy to decide who gets certain property, determining who a child should live with and what is in his or her best interests is much more difficult and complicated.

By working with a New York child custody lawyer from Eiges & Orgel, PLLC, you can breathe easier knowing you will have a seasoned, experienced, and aggressive advocate on your side. Over the last several decades, our firm has helped more than 3,000 families throughout New York.

What Are the Different Types of Child Custody?

In order to better suit the unique needs of each family and child, there are a variety of custody arrangements. In New York, there are two types of custody: "Physical Custody" and "Legal Custody." Physical custody refers to which parent the child lives with, and legal custody refers to which parent has the legal authority and duty to make important decision's regarding the child's life. For each of these categories, one parent might be granted "sole custody" or both parents might be granted "joint custody."

  • Sole Physical Custody: When a child only lives with one parent. The non-custodial parent is usually granted visitation rights.
  • Joint Physical Custody: When the child lives with both parents at different times
  • Sole Legal Custody: When only one parent has the ultimate authority to make decisions about the child's education, religion, healthcare, extracurricular activities, etc.
  • Joint Legal Custody: When both parents must work together to make important decisions about their child's life

Issues to Consider in a Child Custody Case

If you and your spouse wish to carry out an uncontested divorce, you will both need to agree on how your child custody arrangements will work. If you do not agree, the divorce becomes "contested" and the custody matter will be taken to court. Leaving the decision up to a judge can be risky, as you might not receive the custody rights you are entitled to.

If you need help understanding the best course of action regarding child custody in your particular situation, we encourage you to speak with a New York child custody attorney at Eiges & Orgel, PLLC as soon as possible.

How Do I Get Visitation Rights?

For fathers going through the divorce process, you may be concerned as to whether your rights will be protected and how the child custody case will result. If you are a mother filing for divorce, you may have concerns regarding the custody of your children and spousal support payments you may be entitled to if granted custody by a family court. In either case, you will need an attorney who is well-versed in child custody law on your side to deal with these matters.

There are several types of visitation that may be awarded to the parent who was not granted primary custody of their children. Additionally, the grandparents of a child on both the maternal and paternal side may request visitation schedules during the divorce process as well.

While many divorces run smoothly after the child custody and visitation schedules have been agreed upon by both parties or appointed by a family court, there are certain situations that can result in a dispute of the visitation schedule. At a time such as this, it is suggested that you have an attorney present.
