Parents in New York and throughout the country are generally allowed to see their children after a divorce. However, a judge must do what is in the best interests of the child at any given time. This could mean that a parent is denied visitation or is given limited visitation rights. Visitation may be denied or allowed in a supervised format until a parent addresses concerns that a judge may have.
In New York state, a parent can have legal and/or physical custody of a child. In some cases, either legal or physical custody will be shared between the parents or given to one person. Generally, parents share legal custody, which allows them to make decisions about a child collectively. If a parent has physical custody, the kid primarily lives with that person. It is not uncommon for a parent to get sole physical custody even if legal custody is shared.
