What Is Physical Custody?

Physical custody means where does the child reside for more than 50% of the time. If you are seeking custody of your child, contact The Cimino Law Firm today for aggressive representation. We can help you obtain a custody agreement that is in the best interest of you and your child.

As stated above, physical custody refers to the parent with which the child stays more than 50% of the time. If a parent receives sole physical custody, the child will live with the parent full time or most of the time. The non-custodial parent might get visitation rights, but the child’s home base will be with the parent who received full physical custody.

We understand that sometimes, the child will want to live with the more lenient parent, but this isn’t always in the best interest of the child.

We can help you, even if your child wants to live with the “fun parent” who has pizza for every dinner and doesn’t believe in homework. We will also help you navigate the roller-coaster of emotions that come with fighting for child custody in New York State.
