Joint Child Custody

It is often assumed that family courts will impose joint custody on both parents. This is not actually the case. Joint custody is an agreement made between the parents themselves. In such an arrangement, the two parents agree on issues related to their child’s upbringing, including the child’s health care, education, and religious beliefs. New York family courts will not enforce or impose joint custody on parties that are hostile towards each other.
