Joint Custody in New York

Sharing Parental Responsibilities & Decision-Making

In previous years, it was a given that one parent would be given custody of the child. This was typically the mother and was all-inclusive type of custody - giving them both physical and legal control. This, however, has changed in recent years and it is becoming more and more common for courts to grant what is known as joint custody. This is done in an attempt to help the children keep close relationships with both parents as it is determined to be in the best interest of the child.

When joint custody is awarded it could be joint legal custody, joint physical custody or both - the courts awarding an arrangement that best suits the actual family. If you would like to have your legal rights protected or if you would like to learn more about what can be done to help you gain custody of your child, it is highly recommended that you pick up the phone and contact a New York child custody attorney from Eiges & Orgel, PLLC as soon as you possibly can.
