You will have to petition for custody: www.nycourts.gov/forms/familycourt/pdfs/gf-17.pdf

max713 :

You will petition in the county of your jurisdiction.

Then, the court will determine who gets custody and placement of the child.

And, the court will determine any child support award it feels should be awarded.
