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.
