Family issues can be one of the most difficult times of your life, but having the right attorney on your side can go a long way in easing your stress. Whether you are going through a divorce or custody battle, no matter where you live in New York, I am here to get you the best outcome as amicably as possible.
Emotions change, and a once strong relationship can become untenable. Once you and your partner agree to a divorce, you will be put through the legal process of diving assets and creating custody arrangements. This doesn’t have to be a process that ends in hostility and bad feelings. We can walk you through every step of the process, whether spousal support, child custody, child support, or visitation.
We will be your advocate to ensure that you can reach an arrangement where you and your former spouse are both taken care of and still can play a part in your children’s lives.
Accusations of abuse often arise in particularly contentious divorce battles. Being accused of abuse, especially of your children, is emotionally devastating. It can also cause serious reputational damage. The legal consequences can also be severe, with criminal charges being a real possibility when these accusations are raised. You could lose custody of your children and be removed from their lives completely. These accusations can be made falsely because the other party feels it will help them obtain a favorable outcome. Do not take this accusation lightly. We will fight for you so that a divorce does not turn into criminal proceedings and the complete loss of child custody.
If, however, you know that your partner has abused you or your children, then I will fight to remove you from that situation and make you and your children’s safety my top priority. Orders of protection will instruct an abuser to keep away from you and your children or face severe consequences. Do not hesitate to contact me about abuse as these situations often turn fatal. There may even be legal consequences against you if you keep your children in a situation where you know they are being abused, so act as soon as possible.
Abuse can take many forms, including:
- Denial of education
- Denial of Medical care
- Excessive or needless punishments
- Excessive paranoia and need for control over your life or relationships
Whether you are going through the stress of a divorce, a custody battle, or the joy of adopting a child, I will be your advocate and guide. If you live in New York and need an expert on your team, then contact us to be your advocate.
