Work It Out Whenever Possible
At The Prince Law Group, LLC, our Stamford and Westchester County child custody attorneys work hard to reach a settlement you are comfortable with, however, our strong litigation department will support your defense to the finish. Having a formidable litigation team helps to support you in getting the best possible settlement. Our lawyers always urge people to work out parenting plans or visitation schedules with their own input when they can. It makes sense that the people making the visitation schedules would be the ones who best know the child, as well as his or her school and extracurricular schedule.
What Are The Best Interests Of The Child Standards
When courts are considering the outcome of child custody agreements, they look into the best interests of the children involved in the case. In New York and Connecticut, courts will make judgments based on factors such as:
- The temperament and developmental needs of the children
- The wishes of the parents and children
- The ability of each parent to provide for their children
- The health of each parent
- The availability each parent has for their children
- How a child will adjust to home, school and the community depending on where primary residency will be
- If a parent is a possible threat to a child
The main object of a court is to ensure whatever the result of a divorce, the children will be in a position to have their needs met and be able to flourish.
What Are The Legal Options For Custody
In both Connecticut and New York courtrooms, a parent can secure either joint or sole custody of their children. Depending on the best interests of the children in any case, the outcome of the custody agreement can be learnt one way or the other. We can help you pursue the outcome that best reflects the needs of your family.
