Child Custody in New York

The current state of the law in New York State is that there is no automatic presumption that the mother should get custody of the children. Instead, the court is expected to make a custody determination based on the best interests of the children without regard to the parents’ respective genders. The law is not practiced so fairly however, and the courts usually presume that the mother should get custody, if she petitions for it, unless the father can prove otherwise. And the courts usually place a very high burden of proof on the father to actually succeed in obtaining custody. Our Nassau County Fathers’ Rights attorneys vigorously represent the interests of fathers in order to ensure that they are given the equal opportunity for custody that the law requires.

Child Visitation & Fathers’ Rights

Children need a relationship with both parents where possible. If you have a visitation order, but the custodial parent is preventing you from having the visitation rights with your child that you are entitled to, our Fathers Rights lawyers can assist you in ensuring that your visitation-rights are enforced. If the custodial parent is attempting to prevent you from exercising your visitation-rights with your child, our office can assist you in obtaining a “violation order” or modifying the visitation order in order to enforce your visitation rights. This is no small matter, and the Law Offices of Elliot S. Schlissel can help you petition for a reasonable visitation arrangement even if there is not yet any visitation arrangement in place.
