How to Seek Sole Child Custody in New York

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. When this is awarded, the parent will be given complete physical and / or legal custody of the child to assume all parental responsibilities.

If you believe that this is the custody best suited for your situation, then you should not hesitate to pick up the phone and contact a New York child custody lawyer from Eiges & Orgel, PLLC.
