In many cases, judges are interested to hear what preferences children, and especially teenagers, have when it comes to child custody in a divorce in Buffalo.
And while you may worry that your teen will “choose” your spouse over you and that will decide the issue, the truth is that custody is a much more complex matter than simply asking for a minor’s opinion.
Child custody is about determining the home that provides the most stability, love, and structure for the child, and which parent is best equipped to meet the challenges of day-to-day parenting.
Which parent can provide that is based on a number of factors, and the judge will give weight to a number of considerations before determining whether you or your spouse should end up with legal or physical custody of your child.
