Family Court

Family Court the Family Court has concurrent jurisdiction with the Supreme Court in matters
involving child custody, support, maintenance and orders of protection.

Legal separation

There are still many valid reasons to file for legal separation. However, you do not need to be
legally separated to obtain a divorce. This is a common misconception.

Mother’s rights

An unfit parent may seek an award of custody for the wrong reasons. Many mothers have
historically been the victims of financial tyranny and abuse. Traditionally, the husband has been
the primary breadwinner and the wife may be at a financial disadvantage in matters of litigation

Child custody

Child custody is a crucial issue in any matrimonial or Family Court matter. It will impact the life of your
child in many ways. Your child’s residence will shape their daily interactions. Simply put it will dictate
how often you and the other parent see your child.

Domestic Violence

I represented many victims of domestic violence and abuse. I have also represented many
clients who are unfairly and falsely accused of such wrongful acts. Domestic violence and abuse
are serious issues.

Fathers rights

Either parent can seek an award of custody from the court. There is no longer a presumption of
custody to the mother. The “tender years doctrine” in New York State is long gone.

Divorce

A divorce severs a marriage. To file for divorce in New York, you must first have jurisdiction of
the court. In general, either party must have resided in New York State for one year prior to the
commencement of the action, provided that certain other criteria are met.

Enforcement

The custodial parent who is entitled to child support can file an enforcement application with the
court, seeking payment of monies owed.

High net worth

I am particularly well-versed in all issues regarding asset protection and high net worth
matrimonial actions. I have successfully represented many high net worth clients in matrimonial
actions such as business owners, professionals and investors.
