Posts tagged "Child Custody"

Custody and visitation are two different decisions

Raising children in New York can be an adventure. There are many issues that arise while parents raise their children and the different stages of a child's life result in different complications. However, there are two main things that parents do for their children. There are decisions that need to be made and parents also need to spend time with their children. The decisions include medical decisions, deciding where children will go to school and many other decisions. The other main thing is spending time with the children which can include many, many different activities.

Do children have input in child custody determinations?

Parents in New York have to make many decisions for their children as they raise them. Early in children's lives parents make almost every decision for them and, slowly, as they grow older and mature, the children can make more of their own decisions. However, until the children are 18 years old generally the parents still have the final say on most major decisions. This is true whether parents are married or divorced, but if the parents are divorced which parent will have custody and decision-making authority for the children needs to be determined.

Rapper files motion claiming ex-wife is violating custody order

Many people in New York are familiar with music by the rapper Nas, which he has been creating for many years. He is back in the news again, but it is not because of his music. This time he is in the news because he is back in court claiming his ex-wife is violating their child custody order by trying to move their son to Colombia. There have reportedly been many instances over the last year that she has brought their son there while she is starting a farm in that country.

Determining visitation schedules for non-custodial parents

In most situations, it is important that both parents have a role in children's lives in New York. This can be accomplished relatively easily when the parents live together and can see the children every day, but this is not an option when the parents are no longer together. In order to ensure that both parents can still be involved, even though it will not be at the same level they were before, there are generally visitation orders to ensure both parents can still be involved and see the children on a routine basis.

What are the differences between legal and physical custody?

There are many people who get divorced every year in New York and divorce seems to be getting more and more common. The outcomes of these divorces will vary and be unique depending on the specific circumstances of each couple's marriage. However, the major issues that the couples will have to work through are the same. They will have to make decisions about dividing their assets and debts, spousal maintenance, child custody, visitation and child support.

What factors are used to determine child custody in New York?

There are many different parenting styles for parents in New York. There is not one right way to raise children and parents sometimes have different opinions about how to do it. This may lead to disagreements while people are married, but if they are divorced they either need to come to an agreement on which parent will have custody or a judge will have to decide which parent is better suited to have the children. Child custody decisions are not easy decisions, but it is a decision that has to be made.

What happens in a custody dispute if there is domestic violence?

Parenting children in New York is not always an easy job and it can be frustrating at times. This is also true of being in relationships and at times people are bound to have fights or lose their temper with family members. However, some people go beyond simply losing their temper and may physically assault them. This is not only illegal, but also very detrimental for the victims of the abuse both physically but also emotionally and mentally.

Obtaining temporary custody while the matter is pending

There are many situations that arise when two parents are no longer living together and need to split the parental duties. These situations usually arise in divorces or in child custody matters when the parents were never married. These types of cases can be very complicated though and generally take some time to complete as often times the parents do not agree on what the best plan is for the children.

Types of visitation to protect children in custody disputes

Once people in New York become parents they immediately have certain responsibilities whether they like it or not. They must care for their children and provide for their needs. However, some parents take this responsibility more seriously than others. Some parents may also have drug or alcohol addictions or untreated mental health conditions which affect their ability to properly care for their children.
