Protecting Your Parental Rights

As a parent, you deserve to remain involved in your children's lives. Not only do you need to spend adequate time with your children, but you are also entitled to have a hand in their upbringing and a say in major decisions that impact them.

As strong defenders of parental rights, we understand the importance of preserving your relationship with your children.

We also genuinely value your children's well-being. We are strong proponents of the New York Children's Bill of Rights, which aims to educate parents on how to minimize the harmful affects of custody disputes on children. We provide a copy of this document to each client.

Our lawyers can guide you through all custody-related legal issues, including:

  • Paternity petitions and acknowledgements
  • Custody agreements
  • Visitation schedules
  • Child support and other benefits for children
