New York court rules against mother in custody dispute

At times, when a marriage between a couple comes to an end, it is the mother who is frequently deemed by the court to be the primary custodian of the children. Yet a child custody dispute may involve developments which will lead to the mother losing her right to physical custody of her children.

The dissolution of a marriage is a difficult time for both Westchester parties involved, especially when they have one or more children from the marriage. Questions such as who is going to have primary custody of the children and determination of the method of child support that the other parent needs to pay are commonly raised in the course of the legal proceedings. Even when the marriage is not formally dissolved, a parent may still be called upon to pay his or her share of child support.

Divorce battle continues in New York for 14 years

Although divorce is perhaps the most common way to bring a marital relationship to an end, it is by no means the only way. Given the adversarial approach involved in a divorce proceeding, it is certainly not the most pleasant or amicable way of resolving the dispute at the end of which the marriage will be over. One of the other options available to a divorcing couple, especially if the spouses do not wish to experience a long courtroom battle, is divorce mediation. It involves the husband and wife going to an impartial third party. The third party would help the spouses to reach mutually negotiated and acceptable conditions and to reach an amicable agreement.

Though custody disputes are not uncommon among divorced parents and are sometimes settled relatively quickly, there are occasions when these disputes turn into major prolonged legal battles that eat into the lives of both the parents and their child. In either situation, though, it is important to understand that the most prioritized concern that any New York court will keep in mind while deciding a child custody dispute is what is in the best interests of the child.
