New York family law: Paternity issues

There are various reasons as to why a paternity case may be filed in New York. These cases are generally initiated for two main reasons, though, which are mainly financial support and vis itation or custody rights. Establishing paternity is actually fairly easy, but getting child support or addressing custody or vis itation matters may require the assistance of a family law attorney.

Divorce during or after the holidays

While the holidays are generally filled with love, happiness and family, there are numerous couples in New York and elsewhere for whom this time of year is difficult and stressful. This is particularly true for those whose marriages are on the rocks -- so to speak. Divorce is never an easy subject to broach, and doing this during the holiday season is something that many may wish to avoid.

New York family law: Help with separation agreements

When a marriage is not thriving, one or both spouses may start to consider divorce. Some, though, may not feel ready to take such a drastic step. For couples in New York who are not ready to pull the trigger and file for divorce, a legal separation may be the better route. An experienced family law attorney would be able to help with this matter.

Child custody and co-parenting are different for everyone

For couples in New York or elsewhere who have children and decide break up or divorce, figuring out custody and parenting issues can be difficult. Not everyone is able to keep things civil at all times. Even if figuring out a suitable child custody arrangement can be achieved with few issues, parents will still have to find a way to work together in raising their children going forward.
