Hiring a Child Custody Attorney

A highly skilled New York child custody attorney can help protect the best interests of your child and deliver the desired outcome from your case.

Why Get a Custody Lawyer?

Facing a custody case isn’t easy and can be a very stressful time in a parent’s life. Having an attorney that is experienced in handling child custody cases in New York can help relieve some of the stress, as well as help you get a more favorable outcome from your case. A good attorney can help you determine which type of custody agreement would best suit your family and advocate for you throughout the process.

Your attorney can also help walk you through child support which can be a complex legal process with a lot of paperwork involved. If you are the custodial parent it’s important to ensure your child is provided for the same way they would be if you were still married or living with your co-parent. If you are the non-custodial parent it’s important to make sure you are paying the appropriate amount of child support and not being taken advantage of simply because you are not familiar with all of the custody laws in New York.

The point of hiring a custody attorney is to make sure you are able to maximize parenting time in light of your divorce. Unless you can agree on all terms of your custody agreement, you will each need your own New York custody lawyer to get the results you desire. Even if you can come to an agreement it is still recommended to have it signed off by the courts in case your relationship with your co-parent were to change.

Similarly, representing yourself is not ideal. You do not know all the laws surrounding child custody in New York, so you lack the unique insights and angles that a highly qualified custody lawyer has. You will end up losing much more than you will gain and could risk the amount of time you spend with your children, overpaying child support, or not receiving enough child support.

Hiring an Experienced New York Child Custody Attorney

If you are facing a divorce and children are involved you need an experienced divorce and family lawyer advocating for you so you can achieve the best outcome from your case. Losing time with your children isn’t a risk worth taking.

Make sure you always have a legal expert on your side so you can get the best result possible when it comes to your custody case. When divorcing couples have children, they will need to come to a child custody agreement that is in the best interests of the child. It’s not uncommon to wonder how often you will see children, or how much child support you will get if you are awarded custody, or how much child support you will need to pay if you are not awarded custody. Fortunately, Brian D. Perskin & Associates P.C. can help walk you through your custody case and ensure you don’t lose out on any time with your children.
