Yes, while custody used to be heavily tilted in favor of mothers, today the courts take a much more neutral view when it comes to gender.
Fathers probably still face some headwind in terms of winning custody in a disputed matter between two fit parents, but New York is home to plenty of single-parent households headed up by active, engaged fathers who are successfully raising great kids.
The attorneys at Zelenitz, Shapiro & D’Agostino know that for parents, the biggest question mark in a divorce is often how they’ll retain their relationship with their children after it’s over.
We build strong custody petitions for our clients that give them the best chance at winning.
