We Have Joint Custody And I Want To Raise My Child In My Faith In Brooklyn. Can My Ex Object?

More and more adults in Brooklyn are rediscovering their roots in faith communities, and when a divorced parent connects or reconnects with a faith tradition, it’s only natural that they want to share the experience with their children.

However, your former spouse has a say in how your children will interact with your faith, and these details can become very contentious when parents disagree.

In some cases, a spouse may be perfectly willing to allow you to take your child to services during your custodial time.

Others, especially where different faiths are in play, may prefer that the child is raised in their faith and not in yours.
In some cases, these fights can turn ugly, which of course is the opposite of the spirit you want to share with your child.

Trust the attorneys at Zelenitz, Shapiro & D’Agostino to help when you’ve reached an impasse about your child’s experience of your faith tradition in Brooklyn.

We have years of experience with negotiating issues just like this that parents may not have had to address in the original custody agreement.
