Physical Custody for Children of Divorce

Suffolk County Custody Matters

The two parts to a child's custody are legal custody (the right and responsibility to make decisions for the child) and physical or residential custody (where the child will live). These decisions impact the child's life dramatically. It is of the utmost importance to insure the proper physical custody decision is made.

Many factors are taken into consideration by the court when making a decision on physical custody:

  • Age and health of parents
  • Alcohol & drug use
  • Availability of parents
  • A "forensic evaluation" of each parent to determine the mental fitness of each parent
  • Finances of parents
  • Child neglect/abuse
  • What are the possibilities of relocation?
  • Best interests of the child
  • Child's preferences

You deserve the best possible representation in your physical custody case. A professional, compassionate Suffolk County Divorce Lawyer such as Steven P. Kuhn, Esq. can offer you the highest level of legal representation.

A custody order usually includes visitation for the noncustodial parent, and most courts encourage the involvement of both parents in a child's life. But who can provide the best home for the child? Which parent can offer the safety and proper lifestyle in which the child can continue to grow and flourish despite the divorce? Our staff is committed to seeking the best possible outcome for our clients and their children with regard to physical custody.
