Opposing Motion Dismissed

Prior results do not guarantee a similar outcome.

The firm represents a mother seeking child support arrears, college expenses from the Father and a finding of contempt. Father filed an application to dismiss Mother's petition on the grounds that our client, the Mother, had moved out of state in the interim and that the parties' two children had emancipated themselves. The Court determined that the action could be litigated in New York based on the fact that when the petition was brought by the mother, she resided in New York. Father's motion was dismissed. Our client's application was able to go forward and be heard by the Court.
