As you already know, Covid-19 has interrupted people’s lives and businesses immeasurably. We understand the unimaginable suffering and damage this pandemic has caused to both marriages and finances, and want you to know we are here to help you. If you are headed to Family Court to fight for the custody of your children or are considering a divorce, give us a call for a free consultation. It’s a tough call to make, but knowing your options beforehand will make you feel a lot better afterwards. Would you prefer a FREE Zoom, phone or in person consultation? The choice is yours.
Parents who are getting divorced will often find themselves battling over who gets custody of the children. In order to get the Queens Family Court to decide on who will get custody, a parent must first file a Petition for an Order of Custody. A non-parent or close relative may also seek child custody from the court. Call us for a FREE Consult, we’ll go over it with you. Knowing your options will help relieve some of your stress.
A parent in NYS may be required to pay child support up until a
child is 21 years of age. If the child is under 21 but married, in the military
or self-supporting, the child is termed “emancipated” and the parent is no longer
required to pay support. These matters are to be determined by a Family Court Judge. When one parent is given legal custody of the child by the court, the
parent may file a petition to get the other parent to pay child support.
A parent seeking visitation rights may file a petition for visitation in Queens Family Court. This petition is filed against the person or people who currently have legal custody of the child. Child custody and visitation matters are often heard in Family Court within the same proceeding. Other family members may also file petitions seeking visitation. The court will make its best effort to determine which visitation orders are granted, based on the child’s best interests. This is where experienced Family Law Attorneys can make all the difference.
Queens Family Court Lawyers Solomos and Storms focus mainly on Family Law and Divorce. Sometimes, during a separation or a divorce, a spouse may make an allegation which results in an Order Of Protection (OOP) being served on you. It won’t be pleasant: the police will show up at your door, enter your premises and force you to leave. This can happen at a moment’s notice.
What will you do ? If you get served with an OOP, you should immediately contact your lawyer. Don’t do anything at the moment which will make matters worse, ie. argue with the police or threaten your spouse. If you get arrested, it will hurt your case more in the long run. Just bite your tongue and call your lawyer, or if you don’t have one, call us. We will guide you through it. When we take over your case, you’ll breathe a sigh of relief knowing you’re in great hands! Family Lawyers in Queens- we’ve got your back!
