Yes, even parents who are currently not employed outside the home can get custody of their children, and in many cases, being a stay-at-home parent can be an asset in seeking custody.
Judges base custody decisions on what is in the best interest of the child, and when you have a close relationship with the child you’ve been raising as a stay-at-home parent, they lean heavily toward protecting that bond.
When seeking custody in a divorce in Brooklyn, it’s important that you work with the most experienced attorneys available, especially if you are in the position of being the lower earning spouse.
Your rights matter, and a divorce settlement that isn’t properly negotiated can cost you money that you are entitled to over the long run.
