Serving Kingston NY, Ulster County and the rest of New York: Joint Custody, Visitation Agreements – When parents separate or divorce in New York, child custody and visitation rights must be legally determined by way of a court order. The child custody order may be incorporated into a divorce decree, or if the parents are not married, it will be a stand-alone court order. Separated or divorcing parents often need clarification on the legal and practical meaning of child custody arrangements including the following:
Joint custody (co-parenting): This is the default arrangement that family law judges expect to be the norm.
Sole custody: This may be ordered when one parent is unable or unwilling to assume parenting responsibilities.
