Parents who have undergone or are facing divorce know that it places an incredible amount of stress on everyone involved.

We will guide you through every step of the legal process and help you protect your relationship with your child. You can schedule your first meeting now by calling us at 516-746-2300.
Helping Parents Focus On The Future
During divorce proceedings, it is easy to get caught up in the immediate pressures of paperwork and court deadlines. But it is also critical to look ahead to future needs, both your own and those of your children. An attorney who has handled many cases like yours knows how to plan your future, address child support and negotiate an agreement that will relieve you of some financial pressures. You and your former spouse (or partner) are both responsible for the care of your child, and it is only right that the other parent continues to contribute to that care monetarily.
Our lawyers work with each client to understand their unique situation and create a personalized legal strategy. We will then pursue the most favorable outcome for your child custody or support case based on this individualized approach.
Assisting Parents With Custody And Visitation Matters
Legal custody means you are the primary authority for the child and have the right to make decisions for him or her. These decisions include where the child will go to school, the religious institution they will attend, what should be done for your child when he or she is hurt or ill and so on. There are various types of child custody and visitation agreements that can be determined, depending on the family situation and the court’s decision.
We aggressively protect the rights of our clients to have a healthy relationship with their children. Our in-depth preparation allows us to devise the most robust case possible on behalf of our clients. We will do everything in our power to get your desired custody and visitation outcome.
Lawyers Who Help Parents Avoid Child Support Tragedy
Unfortunately, divorce creates so much confusion that a spouse can sometimes leave the process with little or no requirements dictated by the court. Legal loopholes or the simple incompetence of an inexperienced family lawyer can leave a single parent with no choice but to work long hours to make ends meet. No parent should be allowed to walk away from a commitment like having a child, but without skilled legal representation, that is what could happen. Our attorneys will ensure that you get the best possible outcome for your case.
