American families are some of the most unique in the world and can come in many forms. Single parent families, same-sex parent families, grandparent head-of-household families and so many others add to the domestic melting pot America has become. New York is home to many of these families, each of them wanting only what is best for their children. When divorce rears its head, parents must face many difficult legal challenges and child custody often ranks as the hardest of all.

During and after divorce, the mental and emotional health of the couple’s children may take center stage. Parents have deep concerns about how the divorce is affecting their kids. While it is right to be concerned, parental worry can grow out of proportion resulting in one or both parents believing he or she is the only one capable of truly caring for the children. Sometimes, this belief is grounded and other times it is not.

Often what parents need most at this time is a calm yet firm hand to guide them through the child custody process. In short, they may not only need a qualified family law attorney but also a committed advocate to support their needs and desires. Such an advocate can keep a parent’s feet on the ground and keep him or her grounded in reality throughout the process of determining child custody.
