Yes, divorce judges in Brooklyn go to great lengths to prioritize the well being of children, and are certainly open to reasonable agreements that let teens stay in their schools, with their friends.
Often, couples have reached agreement on this point even before they sit down for the preliminary conference, but when that’s not the case, it’s important to make clear to the judge that one parent is willing and able to accept custody in the marital home in order to provide a stable environment for children.
Not all custody matters involve the home, but when they do, additional work is needed to persuade the court that this situation is the one that is best for the children.
The attorneys at Zelenitz, Shapiro & D’Agostino make these exact cases for our clients, with an excellent record of success.
