Types of Child Custody & Parenting Plans
Most courts in the state of New York favor child custody arrangements where both parents can maintain their relationships with the child. This is intended to be for the benefit of all parties involved. In order to continue the parent-child bond, this state has numerous types of arrangements.
New York’s various types of parenting arrangements include:
- Legal custody. This is the right to make decisions regarding the child’s wellbeing, including their religion, healthcare, education, and more.
- Physical custody. This determines whether the child splits time partially/equally between two households or lives solely with one parent.
- Temporary custody. After the divorce is filed, this is awarded to one or both parents. Once the divorce decree is finalized, the child custody order nullifies this temporary custody.
- Joint custody. This is where both parents share responsibility when making decisions about the child’s wellbeing. This typically applies to matters of legal custody and related problems.
