Does The Judge Decide On Custody If We Can’t Agree In Brooklyn?

Yes, if you and your spouse can’t come to terms on custody in a Brooklyn divorce, the judge will hold a hearing to evaluate the issue and make a ruling.

Your child may be appointed an independent advocate who will represent their interests in the matter, and some custody cases can become very detailed, with teachers, coaches, and other adults who are close to your child interviewed to establish which parent is most likely to provide a stable, loving home.

In nearly every case, lawyers will advise you to reach terms with your spouse on your own if at all possible.

There are instances where a spouse will simply not give an inch, which can make litigation necessary to ensure your rights are protected.

In those cases, you need an experienced Brooklyn child custody attorney who can fight vigorously for your parental rights.

Call the attorneys at Zelenitz, Shapiro & D’Agostino today at 718-725-9601 for a free consultation with an experienced Brooklyn divorce attorney.
