Parent’s Rights Attorney

Parent’s Rights Attorney

In many divorce and family law matters involving children, there are numerous issues that can arise. These can include one parent denying visitation, denying contact, or denying overnights. Making matters worse, oftentimes, there are no legitimate legal reasons for doing so.

We have years of experience handling these situations. We can help create a tangible schedule consisting of specific days and times for when visitation will occur. Additional circumstances depend on whether you are the Father, Mother or Grandparents of the children as detailed below.

It is well established that fathers are an integral part of their children’s lives and New York Courts have consistently agreed. It is no longer held that mothers have a more significant right to their children than fathers or that they are better parents.

From child birth to adolescence to adulthood, mothers have a special and unique bond with their children. It is imperative that this bond is not fractured by the other parent. If you are a mother and you are seeking Mother’s Rights of your children, click HERE.

When the grandchildren have a nexus, or a close relationship, with their grandparents, it can be detrimental to them when they are denied visitation. If you are a grandparent and you are seeking Grandparent’s Rights of your grandchildren, click HERE.

Whether you are seeking Father’s Rights, Mother’s Rights or Grandparent’s Rights, we are experienced at helping people get the time they deserve with their children and/or grandchildren.*
