Rushing into a family law case focused only on bringing it to a close is not ideal. You need to take the time to do it right the first time. On the other hand, letting a case drag on can raise both tension and the cost of managing your case, especially if you need to go to the court again and again for additional hearings.
At Friedman & Friedman, our family lawyers in Westchester County look for a balance of carefulness and efficiency when handling a case. We want our clients to fully understand each decision and step, move at their own pace, and avoid any unnecessarily delays. Come to us for compassionate and efficient legal counsel.
You can turn to us when faced with any of the following family law concerns:
We take pride in being a progressive, forward-thinking law firm that earnestly wants to help clients from all walks of life. If you need to divorce your same-sex spouse, we can be the legal team to help you. If you are a father looking to protect your fathers' rights to custody, visitation, or fair child support, then we can help you, too.
Every family law matter is unique and will involve its own particular issues. Speak with a Westchester County family law attorney for the best idea of what your own case will involve. There are some matters that are fairly standard for most family law cases, however, and they are outlined below.
If your family law matter is uncontested, then you will not have to go to court. You can work out your divorce, custody, or support issue on your own via mediation or collaborative law, then present your agreement to a family law judge to be entered. No trial needed! Contested cases will require litigation. While you technically do not need to be represented by a lawyer, it is best for each party to hire an attorney to represent them in court.
Divorce cases generally involved a wide variety of matters, including property division, asset and debt division, child custody and visitation, child support, and spousal support. Child custody and visitation matters can also arise outside of a divorce case, as well as paternity matters and fathers' rights disputes. These can be settled in or out of court, depending on whether or not the involved parties can come to an agreement on their own.
Domestic violence is another area of family law and often involves restraining orders. Protective orders can be obtained without stepping into a courtroom. You simply need to complete the necessary paperwork and go to Family Court to file for an order of protection. A family law attorney can help ensure that you complete and file the paperwork as correctly and efficiently as possible.
No matter the outcome of your family law case, it will affect your day-to-day life and possibly the rest of your life. Whether your child only sees your ex-spouse on the weekends or you receive spousal support each month, the ripples of a family law dispute will be noticeable all over.
With so much hanging in the balance for even just a single decision by a family law judge, make certain you have done all you can to protect all you can. Work with Friedman & Friedman, Attorneys at Law.
