Physical and Legal Factors
Custody disputes are some of the most complex areas of family law for a New York, NY divorce attorney and often one of the places where legal battles between partners arise. That being said, there is no part of a divorce that requires more care and attention than ensuring the best interests of the children.
Each custody scenario is unique. Multiple factors should be considered when determining the best arrangements for children after a divorce. Decisions must be made for both legal custody and physical custody. Great divorce lawyers understand the NY family law, and have the compassion necessary to navigate these complex issues.

In New York, physical custody, or residential custody, determines where the children will reside and which parent has the responsibility for physical care and supervision.
There is joint physical custody and sole custody, the latter offering scheduled visitation to the noncustodial parent. It is the divorce attorney’s job to fight for their client’s rights to physical custody.
Legal custody in New York determines how the parents make important decisions concerning the children regardless of where they live.
Joint legal custody requires that both parents make these decisions together whereas sole legal custody gives only one parent the right to make these decisions on behalf of the children.
Factors to consider:
Custody cases are considered on an individual basis and courts will take many factors into consideration. These include where each parent resides, the health of both parents and their income.
Whenever children are concerned, I believe that a collaborative approach to custody is always better than one imposed by the court.
Having the representation of a reputable child custody lawyer, gives you the best opportunity to negotiate the safety and happiness of the children as well as the fair custodial rights of the parents.

One Step Ahead
Child support is for the sole benefit of the children and should be considered thoughtfully with a careful eye toward the future. Experienced divorce lawyers are here to ensure that the rights of the child and the non custodial parent are both protected.
While support will be mandated based on the income of each parent and their ability to care financially for their children, there can often be issues of financial transparency when it comes to a contentious divorce. And because these issues will impact parents until children become 18 years of age, there are often unforeseen changes in financial circumstances.
In the United States, these issues can become especially complicated in the cases of high net worth law divorce.
As a seasoned NYC child support attorney, I understand the legal implications and intricacies surrounding the enforcement and modification of these agreements.
I strive to establish workable solutions in determining the best options for the children and aggressively represent clients when the need for enforcement or modification arises.
What Our Clients say:
You Don't have to do this alone
Navigating the issues of alimony or spousal support can be an emotionally touchy subject in any divorce. Spousal support is not a given and is determined on an individual basis with the court considering facts such as length of marriage, the income of both parties, contributions made to the marriage, as well as other factors. Especially in high net worth marriage dissolution, these issues can become complex very quickly.
With spousal support, payments may be designed as temporary or permanent but after the court determination, both parties must comply unless a modification is filed.
As an experienced New York divorce lawyer and advocate, I work tirelessly to protect your legal and financial interests at the outset when it comes to the determination of support during and after a divorce.
The practice of family law can be extremely complex and often deals with highly emotional topics for both parties.
Although there are opportunities to “go it alone” in our system, what happens during this time can have many emotional and financial consequences years into the future.
For any family facing a crisis, retaining the right family law attorney in New York City will have a significant impact on solutions both in the short-term and long-term.
Although no one goes into a marriage with a divorce mindset, the current data leans heavily toward that unfortunate reality.
In the past, prenuptial agreements were most common in the realm of high net worth marriages, but they are now used more frequently as partners come together later in life with assets and children from a previous marriage. A postnuptial agreement will enable a couple to make these decisions concerning their own assets and debts after the marriage has already taken place.
Prenuptial and postnuptial agreements are highly individualized and can be extremely beneficial when navigating the waters of a divorce. As an experienced New York divorce lawyer , I understand the legal nuances required in drafting a comprehensive prenup or postnup agreement with the appropriate requirements in place to stand up in a court of law, if necessary.
I pride myself on my unparalleled commitment and hands-on approach with my clients and I offer representation that ensures your financial and emotional success both today and into the future. We offer thoughtful and practical legal advice so you can get on with your life post-divorce.
