NEW YORK CHILD CUSTODY & VISITATION

Child custody determinations in Supreme Court divorces apply the same standard as in family court.

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."  For more information about child custody in your Hudson, Catskill, Poughkeepsie, or Kingston divorce, please click HERE
