Yes, child custody, visitation, and support issues can – in fact, must – be decided as part of your divorce.
If your divorce is uncontested and you and your spouse can negotiate these issues and develop a plan you can both abide by, the court will likely accept your resolution.
If you can’t reach a negotiated resolution, the court will make a ruling on these issues.
If you are already divorced and you or your ex-spouse are failing to meet the terms of your custody, support, or visitation agreements, then you may need to request aid from New York Family Court.
If you need help with a new or existing arrangement related to your children, call the Queens divorce lawyers at Zelenitz, Shapiro, & D’Agostino today at 718-523-1111.
