Key points about New York child custody and visitation hearings

In New York State, when there is a disagreement over custody and visitation of a child, it can be one of the most difficult issues to deal with. Emotions frequently become involved, the parents or other adults who are seeking custody and visitation can see their lives turned upside down, and the best interests of the children are often pushed off to the side rather than at the forefront where they should be. With a hearing centered around child custody and visitation rights, there are certain factors that must be understood.

Some New York divorces go beyond the couple simply trying to part ways and move on with their lives. There are certain circumstances that are complicated by significant assets that are in dispute. People with substantial amounts in their portfolios who choose to split with a spouse will often be concerned about how their valuable properties will be distributed. Having legal assistance with this complex situation is vital to a successful outcome from the perspective of the spouse who accrued the assets, the spouse who did not and anywhere in between.

How is child support affected if I lose my job?

For noncustodial parents who are paying child support, there are times when they are not able to make the payments in full because of job loss. When a person loses his or her job and owes child support, the lack of employment does not eliminate the requirement to pay the child support on time and in full. However, the state does understand that these circumstances will inevitably arise and they are often out of the supporting parent's control. With that, it is essential to understand what legal steps to take after job loss.
