What is supervised visitation?

When New York parents end their relationship, it can be difficult for them to work out a parenting schedule. Both parents will need to follow this plan in order to ensure that each parent will be able to spend sufficient time with their kids. If they cannot come up with a workable custodial schedule and parenting plan on their own, the former partners may need to take their legal matter to court to have a judge decide when each parent will be able to be with their child. Parents may end up sharing physical custody of their child or one parent may be granted sole physical custody of them. If one parent ends up with sole physical custody, then the other parent may be granted visitation with their children

What is an uncontested divorce?

It may seem strange that some New York divorces are granted the designation of uncontested. This is because when most people think about divorce, they imagine conflict, hostility and strife. These sentiments generally do not lend themselves to calm or accepted events, and since divorces are based on the collapse of very personal relationships, it may be hard to imagine how those going through the process could be without conflict.

Third party visitation rights in New York

There are several different ways that child custody cases can be resolved in the courts of New York. Parents can share physical and legal custody of their kids, one parent may be granted sole physical custody of the kids while the parents share legal custody or one parent may be granted the exclusive right to both forms of custody. However, when a parent does not have physical custody of their child and there are no other legal barriers prohibiting it, that parent may be able to secure visitation time with their offspring.

Custodial change may serve children's needs in the New Year

If a New York resident takes the step to initiate legal action against another person in civil court, then it likely means that they have weighed their options and have determined that this action is the best way to protect his or her interests. Whether they wish to prevent a neighbor from damaging their property or collect damages on a personal injury claim, a person who files a lawsuit usually does so to improve their own legal situation.

Child custody modifications may serve your child's best interests

Often when New York parents end their relationships they have concerns over how their children will transition into their new lives. The parents may wish to eliminate as many changes as possible to their kids' schedules and keep life as normal as possible for the children despite the parents' divorce or separation.
