Understanding the “Best Interests” Standard in Child Custody Cases

In New York, custody refers to a parent’s right to make decisions for their child – not where the child will spend time.

When making this decision, the court will consider a number of different factors, including:

  • The age and maturity of each child
  • A child’s desires – depending on their age
  • The atmosphere in the home
  • Keeping the children (siblings) together
  • The quality of parental guidance and mental health

Courts may also bring in a psychiatrist to interview all of the family members and make recommendations. We can help you avoid custody battles.
