Buffalo Child Custody Lawyer

Put Nearly 40 Years of Combined Experience on Your Side

When entering into child custody negotiations, make sure you are represented by a Buffalo divorce lawyer who not only is capable of protecting your rights as a parent, but who also invests his or herself into the protection of the well-being of your child.

We handle divorce matters that are made more complicated due to high assets. Your children won't be overlooked in the process, as we will fight to achieve the best possible child custody arrangement.

Divorce puts the most stress on the youngest members of the family, and it is best to work amicably with all parties involved in order to limit the impact of the separation or divorce on the child. In fact, the standard that the Court will use to determine child custody in the event of a hearing or trial is “the best interests of the child.”

Our team of divorce lawyers at The Rossi Law Firm is dedicated to helping your child enter into a living situation that is best for his or her development, and provides as much emotional stability as possible.

Often there are two types of custody arrangements in these circumstances:

  • Physical custody arrangements decide where a child will live, and whether the child will share time between the parents. Factors taken into consideration when determining this include the school the child attends, the income and employment of each parent, and the ability of each parent to provide a safe and stable living environment. Physical custody could be either sole or joint.
  • Legal custody determines who is able to make healthcare decisions for the child, who is able to decide where the child attends school, and who is able to make general lifestyle decisions for the child. In most circumstances, legal custody is shared by both parents. It can also be the sole responsibility of one parent.

Modifying Child Custody Arrangements

If you or your former spouse intends to move, you may need to revisit the terms of your arrangement. Depending on the distance of the move, the case may need to enter into more formal negotiations. Sometimes, legal custody arrangements need not change; however, an increased distance between the families often necessitates renegotiation of physical custody arrangements.

Other circumstances which can lead to modifying the arrangement include:

  • Change in either parent's income or employment status
  • Medical needs of child
  • Disability of a parent

Schedule a consultation with our divorce attorneys to determine the steps you need to take to appropriately modify your child custody arrangement after a complex divorce.
