Divorce, Custody, Support

The breakdown of any marriage or partner relationship can be a very stressful experience. It raises many issues involving the placement of children and the division of real and personal property. We have represented hundreds of individuals in divorce, custody, visitation and child support proceedings on behalf of parents, step-parents, grandparents and children in Supreme and Family Court. Whether through mediation, the drafting of a separation agreement or, if necessary, litigation, we strive to help our clients through these trying times in a compassionate and professional manner.

Adoptions

Adopting a child is a joyous event, but there are a number of legal procedures and requirements which need to be followed. We have helped guide many clients through this often cumbersome, but ultimately rewarding, process. We will prepare and file all the documents necessary to pursue an adoption, whether it is an agency adoption, a private placement adoption or the adoption of stepchildren.
