What Is The Best Form of Child Custody?

New York courts determine the best form of child custody based on what is in the best interest of the child. To do this, the court analyzes various aspects of the arrangement. Watch this video to learn more about the best forms of child custody based on your situation.

That’s going to depend on a number of different factors, including the age of the children and where the parents reside ,and we can discuss those issues in greater detail when you contact my office for a confidential consultation.

Child preference is one of the most confusing aspects of child custody law. There is a myth that the child can choose which parent to live with after reaching the age of 13, but this is not true. However, the court does give weight to the child’s preference, as long as the child is old enough to make a decision.

The older the child, the more weight the preference is given. Still, the court bases decisions on the best interest of the child, not child preference alone.
