Electronic communication in your New York divorce case- test

Sole legal custody gives one parent the right to make decisions regarding the child. New York Law favors one parent having sole custody, although most other states do not. The philosophy of New York Courts is that if the parties are not getting along, then one party must be in a position to make final decisions. The only way one can obtain joint legal custody is if one can show that the parties work well together and are of the same opinions in their decision making for the children.
