What Are the Deciding Factors For Child Custody?
Courts here in Queens, as well as throughout the state of New York, always base their child custody decisions on what is in the best interests of the child. Parents are also well-advised to use this basis when discussing and negotiating child custody arrangements as part of their final divorce settlement. There are various custody options which include legal, physical, joint, and sole custody.
Other factors which can be taken into consideration when determining custody of a child include the following:
- Each parents' income
- Whether or not they have a stable job
- What their living situation is
- Their age
- If there are any medical concerns
- Depending on the child's age, what he or she wants to do
How Our Queens Custody Attorneys Can Help
Our team will assist you in addressing your short- and long-term goals and implement an effective legal strategy for your case. We will look into the specific factors of the divorce, the parent-child relationship, each parent's income, and the overall health and well-being of the child.
Attempting to negotiate the terms of a child custody agreement without first seeking counsel from an experienced divorce attorney is not advised. When you hire a divorce attorney from our firm, you will have a zealous advocate committed to protect your parental and custodial rights. We always handle child custody cases according to what is in the child's best interests, but we also work hard to help both the mothers and fathers come up with a custody agreement that will help them remain an active part of their child's life. When you work with our firm, it does not matter whether you need representation during negotiations, custody hearing or in court, we will be by your side every step of the way.
Do Children Have a Say In Custody Matters?
If the child is over the age of 12, they may be able to have a say about the parent with whom they wish to live. It is important to remember, however, that all judges will rule in the interests of the child. Working with an attorney can provide you with sound legal counsel and assist in protecting your parental rights or establishing a fair child support agreement.
