Answering Your Difficult Family Law Questions in the Queens Area

No matter what questions you may have regarding your family law matters, our Queens-area lawyers are here for you. We have the answers to many questions, including:

  • I am going through a divorce. Do I need a lawyer? Most likely, yes. Even if your divorce is uncontested, meaning you agree on most issues, it is wise to have an attorney draft an agreement that ensures your divorce will go smoothly, quickly and your decisions will be upheld in court if they need to be.
  • What rights does the other parent of my child have? Every parent has the right and the duty to support and spend time with his or her children. We can guide you through all custody and visitation issues that can arise in your relationship or in your divorce.
  • Can I move out of state with my children? It depends. If your spouse consents or the court finds that it is in the best interests of your children, then yes. If not, then no. It is wise to consult with a lawyer regarding your unique situation.
  • Can I change my child support agreement? If there has been a significant change in your circumstances, you may be able to change what you are entitled to receive or what you have been required to pay.
  • What factors affect child custody? In New York, the courts will look to serving the best interests of the children involved. This could include factors like time spent with the children, history of abuse, the child's preference, where the child attends school and the willingness of each parent to allow the other parent to see the child.
  • What are the rights of grandparents to the children? The courts strongly protect the rights of parents. This makes obtaining a lawyer critical if you are a grandparent seeking visitation or custody, because overcoming the rights of a parent is a very complex process.
