New York Laws Regarding Divorce, Custody and Spousal Support Are Complex

We have dedicated researchers who stay up to date on the latest family law precedents and changes in statutory law.

When Do You Need a Family Law Attorney in New York?

Many people believe that they should first try to resolve their issues on their own, without the assistance of lawyers. After all, isn’t bringing a lawyer to the table an inherently aggressive move?

The people who ask these questions are never people who have been through a family court case before. Those who have experience know that having a lawyer by your side is not a combative move. It’s a protective one that ensures that everyone understands their legal responsibilities, as well as their rights under New York state law. 

A skilled family lawyer understands how Family Courts in the state operate. They understand what sorts of evidence is needed to show what is best for every stakeholder. They know what every party involved deserves and is entitled to. They understand what sorts of arrangements are possible and how to secure the ones that will suit their client’s desires and needs best.

Select the NY Family Law Attorney Who Will Best Serve Your Interests

By having a family law attorney with the skills and understanding necessary at your side, you will have the right arguments made in court. You will be able to clearly state your case and attain an outcome that’s best for you and your children. For instance, a skilled family lawyer can make the difference between getting the minimum legal level of visitation and a visitation schedule that helps cement your relationship with your child. A skilled family law attorney can make the difference between a custodial parent getting minimal child support and getting child support that allows the parent and children to maintain their lifestyle prior to the divorce. An attorney can also negotiate to ensure payment for costs like insurance premiums and school tuition.

If you’re dealing with an emotionally fraught relationship with an ex, we are able to offer the strong, calm and rational buffer that you need. Our family law team will make sure you don’t suffer unnecessary losses, whether that’s financially or less time with your kids. We are the family law negotiators and litigators you most want to guide you through this difficult time in your life.  We’ll ensure that agreements are made based on what is fair and what is best for you.
