Garden City Family Law Lawyer

Child hands on top of adult hands, family law

Modern families require modern family law solutions. We understand that every case is unique and every family and person has their own priorities. We work with our clients to support their specific needs. 

We guide parties who have built families together, including children and homes, regardless of whether they were married or not. Along with more common family arrangements, our New York family attorneys are experienced in family law issues involving child custody and child support between unmarried couples and same-sex couples. 

Why you might need family law litigation

Different kinds of family setup and family law issues require a different approach and understanding of how the law impacts them. When you consult with us, we will take the time to understand your circumstances and explore all of your options. While many family law matters can and should be resolved without costly litigation, we are prepared to represent you in family court. 

Our attorneys handle all aspects of family law cases in court, including:

Child custody and parenting time (visitation)

Resolving custody and parenting time issues can be emotionally difficult. They can become even more complicated when one parent accuses the other of being unfit, or there are allegations of abuse and neglect or alcohol and drug use. Our legal team will help you navigate a custody hearing and work to protect your parental rights. 

Family law litigation: Child support

The courts rely on a formula to determine how much child support one parent may need to pay to the other. In some cases, the parties may disagree about how much they earn or the amount of support their child needs. Our family law litigation attorneys will help you obtain the support your child needs, both now and in the future.

Orders of protection

Some cases include protecting the victims of domestic violence and defending parties who have been accused of family offenses. An order of protection may involve a “refrain from,” where a person is directed to avoid certain activities like harassment or assault, or a full “stay away,” where a person is ordered to not contact or go near the other party. We have helped many people on both sides of these proceedings get through an incredibly difficult and stressful time.
