Buffalo Child Custody Lawyers
What is Child Custody?
Child custody in New York is broken up into two parts: legal custody and physical custody. Legal custody encompasses issues like religious upbringing, medical care and other similar decisions. Physical custody, or residential custody, is where the child will actually live. A court may grant sole or joint custody for either or both physical or legal custody. In New York, the court gives custody based on what is the “best interest of the child”. If there is no court order present, both parents have equal custody of the child.
