Albany Child Custody Attorney Discusses If Your Child Can Live With You
I am frequently ask as a Albany Child Custody Attorney, what can be done if your child wants to live with you. In custodial matters, the children have a voice, but that voice is not alone dispositive. In family court matters, the court will appoint an Attorney for the child to represent the child. That Attorney will stand in the courtroom, on equal footing, as the Attorneys for both the mother and the father. They will also have an equal voice in the overall matter. I advise my clients as a Albany Child Custody Attorney that in New York State, there is no magic age in which the child’s voice will be the voice that the court will listen to above all others in the room.
