New York Child Custody: Achieving Long-Term Family Solutions
Child custody cases can arise during divorce or between unmarried parents. It is also possible for a custody dispute to arise between grandparents and other members of a family. When children’s rights and well-being are involved, it is important to work with an experienced legal advocate who will take the time to understand your objectives and protect the best interests of the child. At Johnson & Cohen, LLP, we offer strategic advocacy focused on protecting our clients and their children in custody disputes.
Divorce And Child Custody
Most child custody disputes will arise during a legal separation or a divorce. You may be concerned about protecting your right to full custody or joint custody, or you may be wondering how a visitation access agreement will work. The courts will make a final determination based on a review of individual circumstances, taking into consideration the fitness of each parent and many other factors. It is important to have an attorney who can present evidence on your behalf and aggressively defend your interests in negotiation or in court.
Our lawyers are experienced with custody cases involving:
- Divorce and separation agreements
- Sole and joint custody
- Parenting time and visitation
- Modifications and relocation
- Enforcement of custody order
- Grandparents’ rights
Our attorneys understand that custody is emotionally complicated and can have a long-term impact on your rights and your children. We will take the time to answer your questions and concerns, identify the legal issues you face and develop a comprehensive solution that works for your family in the long term. While we are strategic in negotiation and settlement, we are also prepared to take your case to trial when the circumstances dictate.
