The custody of children may be heard and decided by the Supreme Court where a Columbia County divorce is pending, or it may be heard and determined before, after, or sometimes even during a pending divorce in Family Court. Regardless of which court has jurisdiction over the case, the standard used by the Court in making child custody and visitation determinations is "the best interest of the child."
