New York And New Jersey Child Custody Lawyers
Courts throughout the nation first and foremost consider what is in the best interest of a child when making any decisions about custody, whether passing judgment during a divorce or on the rights of a custodial parent.
Most common in cases where two parents are contesting custody is some form of a joint custody arrangement, often where one parent is given physical custody but the schedule is aimed at delivering equal time.
Barring unusual circumstances where there is a history of violence, abuse or neglect, courts consider the best option to be one where a child maintains a strong relationship with both parents.
Proven Litigation Success
However, when there is a strong argument to be made, our highly experienced and effective lawyers can aggressively litigate on your behalf. We successfully litigated on behalf of parents seeking custody when one parent is proved unfit to be a proper care giver. We have also helped aunts, uncles, grandparents and step parents take over custody, whether temporary or permanent, when a child can be shown to be in an unhealthy environment.
Our office is well equipped with access to expert witnesses and a strong case history of fighting for the rights of our clients. We can help you fully address a parenting plan that includes child custody agreements as well as decisions about visitation schedules and child support.
