How is child custody determined in New York?

Many White Plains, New York, residents know that the issues surrounding child custody are complicated and plentiful. As a result, when finalizing child custody and visitation arrangements, the custody agreement must be approved by the court. The state of New York further categorizes child custody as legal custody and physical custody. Legal custody gives the parent the right to make important decisions pertaining to a child's upbringing; physical custody refers to the parent who provides the child with permanent residence.
