New York City Family Law Attorney

Defending Your Rights in a Family Law Case

Whether you are planning to file for divorce or if you are involved in a dispute over the payment of child support, you can come to The Law Office of Tamara I. Jordan P.L.L.C. for help. Family law cases are often not only highly complex from a legal standpoint, but can also be overwhelmingly stressful due to the emotionally charged nature of the situation. Give yourself the benefit of having a dedicated advocate on your side who can guide you through the process and fight for you.

Our law firm can represent family law cases such as:

Minimizing Your Costs in Divorce

There are two basic approaches to divorce: contested divorce and uncontested divorce. You and your spouse can either settle your affairs amicably out of court, or you can bring the case to court to have the judge rule for you on matters of child custody, property division, and alimony. A contested divorce is sometimes necessary in cases where the parties are entirely incapable of reaching a settlement without courtroom intervention, but if at all possible it is preferable to negotiate an uncontested divorce. This approach is not only faster and less stressful in most cases, but can also be far more affordable for everyone involved. A New York City family lawyer from our firm can assist by representing you in negotiations with your spouse and helping you reach agreements which serve your best interests.

Representing You After Divorce

When parents divorce, they are almost never able to fully end their relationship. The courts in New York prefer to allow both parents to maintain a role in the children's lives, so you are likely to continue to have to work with your former spouse on matters of child custody, visitation and child support. If the other parent is not fulfilling the monthly child support obligation, we can help you seek legal remedies such as a driver's license suspension or wage garnishments to enforce payment. If, on the other hand, you are unable to keep paying the ordered amount of support, we might be able to help you petition the court for a child support modification to reduce your obligation. It is similarly possible to petition for a modification to custody and visitation, such as if the parent with primary custody is planning to relocate to another area. Bring the case to us today for an initial consultation in our office so that we can review your options and help you understand your rights in the situation.
