Bronx Family Law Lawyers

Family law cases can be both emotionally and legally challenging. Our team of Bronx family law lawyers can help you look past the emotions and address the legal issues in the case so that you can achieve your goals in court. Whether you need to fight for child custody, ask the court for fair parenting time or work out the details of a divorce, our team of skilled Bronx family law lawyers can help you strategize and pursue your case to get the best possible outcome in court.

How we do it

Helping you achieve the best outcome in court means so much more than just making a speech on your trial date. Our aggressive representation starts from our very first conversation with you. We want to know all about you and your case. That allows us to carefully prepare your summons and complaint for divorce. Whether you’re filing for divorce or you’re the one filing the response, we put in the time and attention to prepare every document carefully.

We make sure that your case gets the personal attention it needs at all stages. Our team goes over your documents with a fine tooth comb in order to make sure that you appropriately ask for everything that you deserve. Then, we set about building your case.

How does a divorce work in New York?

In New York, you can file for divorce based on fault like violence, cruelty or your spouse spending three or more years in prison. You can also file for divorce on the grounds that there is an irretrievable breakdown in the marriage. At least one of the spouses must fulfill a residency requirement by living in the state for enough time before filing for divorce.

You file a document called a complaint for divorce. The complaint for divorce outlines your demand for a divorce and what you expect from the divorce such as child custody, spousal maintenance and property division. You also prepare a summons. A summons is an official notice to the other side that they’re being sued. You file these papers with the appropriate court. Then, you serve a copy of the paperwork on the other side and wait for their response.

Types of family law cases

When most people think of family law in the Bronx, they think of divorce. Divorce cases are a large part of our family law practice. However, we represent clients in all types of family law matters including:

  • Divorce with children
  • Divorce without children
  • Contested divorce
  • Uncontested divorce
  • Custody establishment

  • Adoption
  • Probate, guardianship and inheritance matters
  • Other family law needs

Our winning strategy

Even though most family law cases don’t end up in a trial for the judge to decide, we build our case as though it’s headed to a formal trial. We do whatever it takes to build you a strong case. It’s our goal to make an accurate picture of your debts and liabilities in order to determine what you should ask for from the court. Our team digs deeper in order to find the witnesses and the evidence that allows you to present a strong case in court.

Exploring all options

While we’re building your case for trial, we’re also doing everything that we can in order to resolve your case fairly and quickly. Many times, doing the work to prepare the evidence helps the other side see why they should agree to give you what you’re asking for. When you work with our Bronx family law lawyers, you don’t have to have tense discussions with the other side about how to resolve the case. You work with us, and we’re the ones who approach the other side.

We have the skill and confidence to effectively negotiate your case on your behalf. We can explore mediation as a way to resolve your case. However, at each stage, we work with you to make sure that you make the best decisions for you considering everything that’s relevant to the case.
