Buffalo Child Custody Attorney Explains How Judges Determine Custody

As a dedicated Buffalo Child Custody Attorney , one of the most common questions parents ask is, “What’s going to happen with respect to custody of the children?”

  • If the parents can’t decide what’s best for their children, the judge will decide custody issues based on the best interest of the child or children.
  • What matters is not what’s best for the parents or for either set of grandparents, but what is best for the child or children.
  • The court will often consider what the parties have done between themselves, but New York law sets forth the best interest standard, and that law will guide the court’s decision.
