Seeking Custody of Your Children?
Either parent, mother, or father, may be awarded primary custody of the children. When determining this arrangement, the court looks beyond gender and focuses on the best interests of the young ones in question.
We listen carefully to your needs and your hopes for your negotiations. You know your children better than anyone; we work with you to understand how the law applies to your case and how it can work in the best interests of what you feel is best for your loved ones.
If your case is taken to trial, the court will want to review the following points:
- The physical location of each parent in relation to the children's current school and social lives
- The wishes of both the children and the parents
- Any history of abuse and the health of the relationship between the children and each parent
- Work schedules and personal lives of each parent
Joint Custody vs. Sole Custody in New York

Whether you're seeking sole custody or willing to work out a joint custody arrangement, with Law Offices of Sandra M. Radna, P.C. you're never just another case number. You are a parent looking for what's best for your children.
