Custody

WomensLaw.org strongly recommends that you get help from an organization in your area before proceeding with court action.  Go to our NY Places that Help page for a listing of organizations and legal services in New York. In our general Custody page, we have information about custody that is not specific to any state. The page includes a section about how to try to transfer your custody case to a new state where you are living so that you can modify the custody order from your new state.
