Judges in Brooklyn do not make custody determinations based on a parent’s gender, though there are a variety of reasons why mothers may still be more likely to gain physical custody of their children.
However, New York is now a same-sex marriage state, so increasingly, judges are seeing cases where both parents are mothers or both parents are fathers.
That’s where an experienced Brooklyn divorce and custody attorney can make a big difference for you.
Judges are extremely interested in seeing how a parent can provide a safe, stable, and loving home to their children, where all of their needs will be met.
Producing strong custody arguments is a key piece of any divorce where children are a factor, and the attorneys at Zelenitz, Shapiro & D’Agostino make it our mission to protect our clients’ parental rights to the highest degree possible.
