Manhattan Child Custody Lawyer

Marcia E. Kusnetz | Manhattan Child Custody Lawyer

Issues of child custody and parental access should take precedence over all other matters in a divorce. These matters can often be the most adversarial and contentious. It is wise to seek the counsel of an experienced New York child custody attorney to guide you to a beneficial resolution of these important issues.

At The Law Office of Marcia E. Kusnetz, P.C. , we take special care to attempt to resolve custody and access issues, so that the parental rights of our clients are respected and achieved. Always at the forefront are the best interests of the child(ren). Our clients rely on us to protect their parental and access rights throughout these custody proceedings. We also work to ensure that our clients understand the legal process, the timelines involved and any challenges they might encounter in these proceedings.

Westchester County Parental Rights Attorney

Decisions relating to child custody are premised upon a best interest analysis, which includes a number of factors. That is to say, the court will decide custody issues after consideration of what is in the best interest of the child, with the goal of furthering the child’s growth and development, and preserving the child’s stability and support.

 In most situations, the parties can agree on issues related to custody and parental access through negotiation. If, however, negotiations break down, a custody battle can result. If there is an impasse in the settlement of this issue, our law firm can suggest steps to take before a trial becomes necessary. We may recommend the involvement of the court’s social worker, parent coordinators, or the child’s attorney to assist in achieving a settlement. Our law firm will advocate to preserve your parental rights in the best interests of your child. Should the settlement negotiations break down, and a trial is necessary to preserve your parental and access rights, we will ably represent you in that trial.

Parental Rights

Each parent is entitled to parental access to the child in furtherance of the child’s best interests. Our goal is to advocate for our clients’ parental rights of access and decision-making for the child. Contact a New York child custody lawyer at our law firm if you have questions or concerns about fathers’ rights.
