New York State recognizes two forms of custody.  The first is Joint Custody where the child resides physically with one of the parents; the second being sole and legal custody of the child to one of the parents. (see Domestic Relations Law and Family Court Act)

Joint Custody.

If there is no Court Order or Court intervention New York State recognizes both parents as sharing joint custody.  Each parent will have equal custodial rights.   When the Court is involved via a custody preceding then the Court will decide who the custodial parent will be based upon all the facts and circumstances and what is in the best interest of the child. (see DRL and FCA)

If the parents can agree and make decisions together then Joint Custody is warranted and accepted by the Court.  This is usually accomplished by written Agreement accompanied by a parenting schedule.  All decisions about the children must be made together.

Sole and Legal Custody

            If there isn’t an agreement between the parents as to custody, then the Court will Order a trial.  After all the evidence is presented during the trial, the Court will award to one parent Sole and Legal Custody to one of the parents based upon what is in the best interests of the child.   The Party who is the Custodial parent is the sole parent who will make the decisions in all aspects of the child’s life.  (see DRL and FCA)
