Divorce Litigation

Custody, visitation and support matters, as well as orders of protection, can be handled in either Family Court or in Supreme Court. Divorces can only be granted by the Supreme Court. Depending on your situation, one court might be preferable. If you are going to pursue litigation, you should confer carefully with your attorney before deciding which court would be more appropriate for your situation.

We handle uncontested and contested divorces, as well as family court matters related to support, visitation, domestic violence, paternity, adoption and related matters.

We have handled thousands of such matters and are completely familiar with the operations of the courts. We can help you present your best possible arguments to the appropriate court if it is necessary to go to court to resolve your issues.
