Child Custody Plans Tailored to Your Family

Divorce can be difficult for everyone affected by the process. However, it is often most difficult for children, who may feel as though they have little or no control over what is happening. At the Law Office of Peter D. Hoffman, PC, our attorneys prioritize protecting the best interests of children in all family law and education matters.

From our firm in Katonah, we represent families throughout Westchester County, Rockland County, Putnam County, Manhattan and the Bronx, New York.

How Is Child Custody Determined?

Several factors influence child custody. Most importantly, family law judges focus on meeting the best interests of the child. Other factors that are considered include:

  • The child's preferences, if he or she is old enough to express a preference
  • The mental and physical health of both parents
  • The ability of each parent to provide a stable home environment
  • Support from and opportunity for interactions with extended family

Your child deserves the best, and we can help you create a parenting plan that focuses on your child's unique needs.

Child Custody Plans for Children With Special Needs

Child custody and visitation plans often have children spend alternating weekends with each parent or transitioning between homes in the middle of the week. For children with special needs or individualized education programs, however, traditional custody and visitation schedules are often not appropriate. The inconsistent schedule and lack of routine may negatively affect the child's emotions and his or her performance in school.
