Rochester Child Custody Lawyer Discusses Joint Custody and Sole Custody

Often as an experienced Rochester Child Custody Lawyer, I am asked the differences between Joint Custody and Sole Custody in New York.

  • If you have joint custody, you and your child’s other parent will be required to make decisions about your child together, cooperatively.
  • If you have sole custody of your child, you alone will be required to make decisions about your child.
  • You can have a shared residency plan and still have one parent be sole custodian.
