Child custody is determined by the court in any dispute involving custody or in the event of a divorce or separation agreement. If the parents are not married to one another, custody and visitation will be determined by way of a separate, or stand-alone, court order. A child custody order may also be incorporated into a divorce decree. Generally speaking, the court may order joint custody or sole custody.

  • Joint Custody, also referred to as shared custody or co-parenting, is an arrangement wherein both parents have custody of the child or children. In New York, joint custody is only awarded upon an agreement by both parties.
  • Sole Custody may be ordered when one parent is unable or is unwilling to assume the responsibilities associated with parenting.

Child custody arrangements can be difficult to deal with not only because they are complex and legal in nature but also because of the stress and emotional drain associated with dealing with such a sensitive matter. You likely feel very strongly about getting custody of your child or children, and having to fight for that right can make one feel helpless and frustrated.
