Protecting the bond you’ve established with children in a blended marriage can be difficult when a couple who shares children from previous relationships divorces in Buffalo.
If you have not formally adopted your spouse’s children, courts will give broad leeway when it comes to how the parent chooses to structure their own child’s life.
If there is a dispute between two fit parents, the court will side with the biological parent of the child in the vast majority of cases.
That said, it is still possible to develop custody agreements that include provisions for maintaining your relationship with a child who isn’t biologically yours, but with whom you have a close relationship.
At Friedman & Ranzenhofer, we work to achieve satisfying divorce agreements that protect the things our clients cherish.
