Types Of Child Custody Arrangements
New York law uses certain terms to describe these arrangements. It is important for parents to understand these terms, and Mr. Bokser would be glad to go into them in more detail, if you like:
- Legal custody: the right of a parent to make decisions about a child's general welfare, such as education, medical care and religion considerations
- Sole legal custody: the exclusive right to make decisions regarding the child's general welfare
- Joint legal custody: a situation in which both parents contribute to the child's general welfare, granted if the parents have shown an ability to cooperate
- Physical custody: the right of a parent to have actual, physical possession of a child
- Sole physical custody: when a parent with sole physical custody has the exclusive right to live with the child; the noncustodial parent has visitation rights
- Joint physical custody: dividing the child's time between the homes of each parent
- Access time: another term use to describe a child's time with the parent instead of visitation or custody
Attorney Andrew A. Bokser always works with clients to educate them about the law and what they can expect. These disputes over custody and visitation are always best settled out of court, since judges will impose an order that may not please either party. At this point, you and your children's future will rest in the hands of complete strangers.
