Shared Custody in NYS

Q:  In a true shared custody situation where parents split the week alternating every other weekend including fridays, Which parent is considered to have primary residential custody? (for school enrollment/doctors forms, etc.)

Thank you.

A:  David's Answer:  If you have a court order to that effect, then the child should be able to be enrolled in either school district. To the extent there is any dispute, you can get that clarified by the court on a modification petition. Schedule a consult with a NYC Child Custody lawyer for a full assessment.  -- David Bliven, Bronx Child Custody attorney (
