What Is Child Custody?

You want what is best for your child, and that means ensuring that he or she has the right custody arrangement. The Cimino Law firm has over 20 years of experience in child custody cases in the state of New York.  Our Rochester law firm can help you get a custody arrangement that is in the best interest of your child. We understand this is a complicated process, but we will be by your side every step of the way.

Custody means decision-making, not time with your children. When we discuss custody, we’re discussing whether we have joint custody or sole custody, who gets to make the decisions and what we do if there’s a disagreement between the parents.

Our legal team can help you mediate a custody agreement. However, if you are unable to reach an agreement or feel that your child will be in danger, we will present evidence to the court. Then the court will determine the custody order.

New York courts determine child custody based on the best interest of the child. To do this, the court analyzes various aspects of the arrangement.
