The Family Court hears matters involving children and families. Its jurisdiction includes: Adoption; Guardianship; Foster Care Approval and Review; Delinquency; Persons in Need of Supervision; Family Offense (domestic violence); Child Protective Proceedings (abuse and neglect); Termination of Parental Rights; Custody and Visitation; and Support.
Family Court is a very diverse forum which can deal with several important issues such as child support, custody, visitation, orders of protection, or family offenses. With more than a decade of experience, family law is a major area of our practice as we handle these cases on a very regular basis. This experience gives our firm the unique tools and focused eye to assist you in an aggressive, yet strategic manner!
Issues pertaining to child support, visitation, or custody can become extremely complicated, or worse, hostile issues to iron out. Our firm addresses these issues in a comprehensive and organized manner so you can rest easy. Depending on the specific facts and circumstances surrounding your particular case, our firm can take varying approaches. Although no law firm can predict the exact outcome as to how a case may turn out, we always use the experience we have gained, along with our zealous advocacy, every step of the way to represent you effectively.
Regarding family offenses, our firm frequently represents both victims and the accused. Family offenses are often filed when one party seeks an order of protection, generally speaking, from either a member of their family, or, perhaps an intimate partner, etc. Although there are certainly relationships which can become violent, many remedies are available. If you are a victim of domestic violence our office can immediately put you into contact with an organization such as the Center for Safety and Change. This organization will equip you with strong advocates who will not only help you get through an overwhelming process, but also offer support for you during court appearances. On the other hand, should you be the subject of the family offense, our team will sit with you and analyze all the accusations made in order to build a suitable defense to your case in an efficient manner. Although every case has its particular circumstances, our firm has had great success in having false family offenses dismissed by the courts.
Family court is an extremely effective mechanism which helps families on a very specific an individualized basis without having to go to Supreme Court. As Supreme Court can be a very lengthy and expensive litigation process, Family Court provides an opportunity to condense the process, generally keeping legal fees significantly lower and outcomes more rapid. Remember, with a strong legal team standing by you, you do not have to go it alone.
