Custody Agreements Are Not Always Easy

When a couple separates, the most important decisions they will make involve their children. Determining what the future will look like is not always easy. Our founding attorney Lee A. Rubenstein has worked with clients throughout New York for 35 years. Our team has handled some of the most complex cases and are committed to helping you find a solution.

How Is Custody Determined?

There are many ways to decide on a parenting plan. In many instances, these agreements can be made without a judge. If you and your partner can agree on a child custody arrangement, it can speed the process up. However, it is vitally important to get these decisions officially written down on paper. That way, when disputes arise, you can go back to your legal documentation. Similar to agreeing on the terms of your divorce, it is always best to have a knowledgeable attorney at your side.

If you cannot reach a solution, a judge will have the final say. They will look at a number of things, including:

  • The relationship between each parent
  • The proximity to their child’s school
  • The ability for each party to care for the child

The judge will always try to make a determination that is the best option for the child. Our job is to make sure your voice and concerns are heard. From moving out of state to specific rules of visitation, our experienced family law attorneys can help you navigate the legal process and help protect your child visitation rights.
