Long Island Child Custody Lawyer
The Relationship of Custody & Adoption in New York
If your marriage is ending, it is vital you enlist the help of a Long Island
lesbian divorce attorney to protect your rights and your relationship
with your children. As same-sex couples are not afforded the automatic
recognition that a child born in wedlock is the child of both marriage
partners, an adept legal approach is required. The safest way to ensure
you have legal rights regarding your child is to pursue
adoption as soon as the child comes into your family. We at
Friedman & Friedman, Attorneys at Law can assist with the adoption process as well as your custody matter.
Even if you are not the biological or adoptive parent of your child, our
skilled legal team can fight for the rights you deserve. As the laws regarding
same-sex marriage are constantly evolving, you need legal counsel with
a thorough command of the subject. As a law firm concentrating on matrimonial
and family law, we are well-poised to fight for a fair resolution to your
custody and visitation issues. Although guidelines regarding child custody
can be included in
prenuptial & postnuptial agreements, the final arrangements must be approved by the court. The court will
consider many factors, all in relation to the best interests of the children.
