Family Law Proceedings
Child Support Enforcement

Each child in New York must be supported by his or her parents. The responsibilities are split between the parents and if one parent is not living up to his or her part, the other has the right to petition for a Child Support Enforcement proceeding.

Child Support Modification

Anyone who have children-in-common with another person is liable for the support of each child. There is a statutory metric for that support and each is calculated through individual sets of circumstances. Child Support modification is permitted when there is a sufficient change in circumstances. These changes are viewed in widely-varying ways by the court. If you want to request a modification, you should speak with an attorney about how to move forward with the court.

Custody

Physical custody is the right to have your child live with you as ordered by the court.
Legal custody is the authority to make significant decisions on a child’s behalf, including decisions about education, religious training, and healthcare.
Joint custody is an arrangement by which both parents share responsibility for and authority over the child at all times, although one parent may exercise primary physical custody.

Visitation

Visitation, also called Parenting time, is just as important to many parents because those who don’t have residential custody still have the right to be involved and contribute to the growth of their children nonetheless. Parenting time through visitation should not be dealt with lightly. It should be fought for and ordered by the Court so that parents aren’t excluded from their kid’s life.

Adoption

Adoption is a legal process. Having a family law attorney to represent you and your family will help ensure that this process goes smoothly. An attorney is also a must for the parent-child relationship to be recognized through the court. In New York State, if you are adopting a child, you must be Pre-Certified through your local court before taking official custody. Our experienced family lawyers at Nave Law treat every case with compassion, and will guide you through the necessary legal processes.

Abuse and Neglect

Between today’s technology and laws, there have amazing innovations for the protection of everyone in our community. But these innovations also lead to many situations where parents’ abilities to raise their children safely and without government interference are questioned by the Court. No matter what someone is accused of, they should always fight for their parental rights

Family Offense

If there has been any violence or accusation of violence within the family unit, don’t wait to call to protect yourself. If you have been hurt, the Court can provide you Orders of Protection. If you have been accused, you will need to be defended.

Juvenile Delinquency

When a person who is accused of a crime is not the age of majority, the Family Courts may have jurisdiction. It is beyond importance to make sure that if you child is accused of being a delinquent, that he or she appear in Family Court, not criminal court.

Paternity

Proving who a parent is, or isn’t, is integral to making the system works properly. If there is uncertainty, then following through with a court ordered DNA test is the only way to protect your rights.
