How to Get Sole Child Custody in NY

Are you fighting for sole custody in New York?

While joint custody is typically preferred in child custody cases, there are situations where it is not feasible. In these cases, the court may be dealing with a parent who has struggled with alcohol or drug dependency, has a history of domestic violence or has otherwise proven to be an unfit or unsuitable parent. In these cases, the custodial parent may argue for what is known as sole custody.

What Is Sole Custody in NY?

"Sole Custody" is a custody award that assigns both legal and physical custody to one parent. This parent is often called the "custodial parent." The non-custodial parent is generally granted visitation rights . Furthermore, while one parent may have primary custody, this parent may be required to deliberate with the non-custodial parent about certain child care decisions.
