Brooklyn Child Custody Attorney

Child custody and visitation are often the most contentious and emotionally charged issues in all of family law. After a divorce or after unmarried parents separate, one parent will typically maintain physical custody of the child(ren), subject to visitation by the other parent. More and more parents are choosing joint custody, so they can each play a more meaningful role in their children's lives.

Both parents typically share legal custody, which means they maintain decision-making authority over important aspects of the child's life, including education, religion and medical care.

If you are engaged in a child custody matter, it is important to consult with an attorney who can protect your rights and the best interests of your child(ren). With more than 35 years of experience, Brooklyn child custody lawyer Eli Yeger can help you through these critical legal matters.

Resolving Child Custody Disputes

Child custody disputes can be extremely sensitive. We believe these disputes should be resolved in an amicable fashion whenever possible, to spare the children from unnecessary strife and acrimony. This does not mean we will back down when the other party refuses to be reasonable. The guiding principle in all child custody cases is protecting the best interests of the child. We have the knowledge to determine how that principle will apply to your case and how judges are likely to rule.

Child Custody Modifications

When circumstances change significantly, existing child custody and visitation orders may become unworkable. In the event of a relocation, job loss, medical crisis or other situation, a parent may petition the Family Court for a modification of orders. If the other parent sees the modification as an adverse development, he or she can contest the action. Whichever side of the issue you are on, we can provide you with the skilled legal guidance you need.
