Father’s Rights to Unsupervised Visitation Upheld

Prior results do not guarantee a similar outcome.

In a recent Decision by the Appellate Division, Second Department, the Firm was successful in defending against an appeal of an Order of the Orange County Family Court which denied a mother's application to reduce a father's visitation with his child to supervised. The father's right to unsupervised visitation with the child remained intact after trial in the Family Court and an appeal in the Appellate Division, despite allegations made by the mother against the father that limited visitation was in the child's best interest.
