Family Law Counsel For Families

There is nothing more important or worthy of fighting for than your family’s future. At times of transition, challenge or special needs in your family, you may need legal counsel to get through difficulties and on your way back to stability. We represent individuals and couples in a wide range of family law matters, including adoption, custody, paternity and matrimonial law throughout New York City and the surrounding areas.

We want to help you achieve your goals in the most rational, constructive ways possible.

What Is Special About Our Firm?

Since family law matters often intersect with other areas of the law, such as real estate, we are pleased that our law firm serves as a “one-stop shop” for many of our clients with a variety of legal issues involving families, including those discussed below.

Adoption

We examine cases from a global, holistic perspective to arrive at strategies that will meet our clients’ needs in legal matters such as the following:

  • Adoption and related issues
  • Stepparent adoption and second-parent adoption
  • Adoption by grandparents, siblings, aunts and uncles, and other close relatives
  • Adoption by foster parents
  • U.S.-based adoption of children adopted internationally

We will help streamline the process while making sure to cover the necessary bases to prevent future challenges to adoption by biological parents or anyone else.

Child Custody

We stand with our clients seeking child custody orders, modifications and enforcement in situations such as the following:

  • Divorce or separation
  • Missing or imprisoned parents
  • Military deployment of one or both parents
  • Parental move-away circumstances

As family law courts place the highest priority on children’s best interests, we present evidence to family law judges that our clients are fit, involved parents.

Divorce

Some clients ask for our help to complete quick, uncontested divorces. Other individuals need more complex representation in high-asset divorces, high-conflict divorces and gray divorces.

Paternity Actions

We assist with parentage issues for clients such as the following:

  • Mothers who seek child support
  • Fathers who seek access to children born outside of marriage
  • Intended adoptive parents who need documentation of termination of the biological parents’ rights

Domestic Violence

If you need a restraining order or need to have your name removed from such an order, we are available to help you resolve this painful matter with your legal rights intact.
