New York custody attorneys Martin Mohr and Ethan Steward clarify the professionals and cons of joint custody

New York custody attorneys Martin Mohr and Ethan Steward publish a new article ( detailing the benefits of joint custody are explained detention in New York. The attorneys note that New York divorce judges prefer joint custody arrangements whenever possible. First, it is important to distinguish joint legal custody from joint physical custody.

“Joint custody means that both parents have equal responsibility for decisions about childcare, schooling, religion and other such life decisions. On the other hand, joint custody refers to a child spending equal or nearly equal time with both parents — for example, 4 nights with one parent and 3 nights with another,” the NYC attorneys’ article for the said Care.

Attorney Martin Mohs says joint custody and joint physical custody will be awarded separately. The advantages of joint custody are, on the one hand, that both parents can continue to be involved in the upbringing of the child. Second, the child can enjoy a more stable environment. And third, joint custody can divide parents’ responsibilities evenly.

Family law attorney Ethan Steward adds that joint custody has its own downsides. These disadvantages include difficulties with planning and scheduling, conflicts and arguments are common, and the children have to move houses frequently. The lawyer adds that if parents want to apply for joint custody, the best thing they can do is sit down with their spouse and work out a plan for parental leave.

According to the attorneys, “If you do not share joint custody of your children with your ex-spouse, one or the other parent will be awarded full legal and/or physical custody of the children based on the court’s decision. The details vary depending on the decision of the court. However, the non-custodial parent still has the right to see and raise their children, usually including late-night visits.”

Finally, the attorney emphasizes the importance of having a qualified child support attorney when dealing with matters such as custody and handling of children. An experienced attorney can help parents understand their roles and responsibilities in the divorce and help them reach a favorable settlement.
