Does My Teenager Get To Decide Which Of Us Will Have Custody In Queens?

While your child’s wishes do play a role in deciding custody, ultimately you, your former spouse, and the judge will have to make a determination based on the best interests of your child.

If your former spouse can’t provide a safe and stable home environment for your teen, then what your child wants won’t be what your child can have.

The key thing to remember in any custody matter is that the end result should be a loving home where your child’s needs are met, including establishing proper boundaries so they can focus on what matters – their education and extracurriculars.

The parent who can most effectively provide that has a huge advantage in determining child custody, and you should work with an attorney who can make your case in the most persuasive manner possible.

At Zelenitz, Shapiro & D’Agostino, we understand how to show judges what’s in the best interest of your child.
