Our attorneys make every effort to reach a resolution for your divorce as quickly and efficiently as possible so that you can focus on building your new life. Our services to divorcing clients include helping to determine agreeable custody and visitation arrangements. In New York State, child custody is comprised of two parts: legal custody and residential (physical) custody. Legal custody is the right and responsibility to make decisions about education, medical and healthcare, therapeutic decisions, and religion for a child; residential custody determines where the child will physically live. It is vital to the success of your case to obtain a NY child custody lawyer familiar with all aspects of child custody law.
