J.R. v. M.S.

New York Supreme Court
55 N.Y.S.3d 873 (2017)


J.R. (plaintiff) and his wife M.S. (defendant) had one child together. Both parents were professionally successful and had a good relationship with the child. J.R. filed a petition for divorce. J.R. had an argumentative personality that made co-parenting after the divorce difficult. The parties agreed on major decisions, such as the child’s school and pediatrician, but generally the parties could not make joint minor decisions. The parties tried to agree to a co-parenting schedule on many occasions. Ultimately, both parties agreed that joint decision-making was not a viable option.
