Your Children Are Unique. Your Legal Strategy Should Be Too.

That is why we take the time to get to know each of our clients and their goals. We are responsive to client concerns and questions because we know how much child custody matters mean to our clients. Nothing is more important to you, which is why we treat every client as if they were our only client.

Types Of Child Custody In New York And Modifying Agreements

Whether you are seeking full physical custody as the primary caretaker or want to negotiate a workable joint parenting plan out of court, you can rely on Michael Fineman to provide experienced legal counsel. He can also walk you through the legal custody issues, which determine who will make important decisions for the child such as which schools to attend, what religion, if any, to practice, where the child will get medical care and so on.

We also help parents modify existing custody arrangements, including parental relocations. If circumstances have changed significantly since a custody and visitation schedule was ordered, you can petition the court to modify an existing order. Michael Fineman can walk you through the requirements for obtaining a modification and ensure the full circumstances of your situation are clear to the court.

Visitation Rights Affect Parents And Nonparents

When divorce happens, there are more people affected than just the immediate family. Some of the other people who may seek visitation rights are:

  • Grandparents
  • Aunts
  • Uncles
  • Stepparents
  • Guardians

We can assist you in making legal arrangements to protect important relationships for the children, so the family can have a positive outcome after going through the difficulties of divorce. We will help you consider the whole picture in your family law matter.
