How Child Custody Is Determined in New York

Where and with whom a child will live is addressed in a child custody case. Legal custody refers to the parent who has rights to make decisions regarding the child's future. Physical custody regards the parent with whom the child lives as well as the actual place where the child resides. The parent with physical custody has the right and responsibility to make decisions regarding the everyday undertakings of the child. In New York, neither parent will be given preference to child custody because this decision is made based on parenting ability and other criteria, not an individual's sex.
