I'm honored to be listed in Westchester Magazine's "Super Lawyers" for NY Metro & Westchester area for 2019!
Q: I placed an order of protection on my baby father due to an argument we had and I'm 9 months pregnant I need him to be present for the birth which can happen in 3 weeks or less but my attorney won't budge because he's trying to take my baby father down after I already said I wasn't pursuing charges and he's going against my will to do everything and I really need help right away since time is running out .
Q:The father had me sign an agreement but it has scratch outs with no initials next to it and it was still notarized. It looks sloppy and I do not want to continue this agreement anymore & I need the judge to stop it so we can continue in court for child support.
Q:My child's mother and I have never been married but we both signed the birth certificate. Just recently she told me she was moving to Indiana and refuses to let me see or talk to him. She never discussed the move with me and doesn't care how I feel about her taking the child. She Just called today to tell me she will be leaving in a day or two but will allow me to see my son once before they leave. Please note, I haven't spoken to or seen my son in weeks prior to this phone call. If I pick him up and decide I wanna keep him for more than a few days. Can i get in trouble? I'm also a convicted felon but wish to file for joint custody and visitation rights, can I keep him and file those papers while refusing to return him to his mother??? There are no prior custody agreements between us.
Q:My partner haven't seen her husband in 2 years and she had a kid with another guy and now she is pregnant by me ... and I would like to get married to her ...
Q:I was awarded full legal and sole custody of my son by default. The father never showed twice, then I went to court for visitation only they provided me with a public defender and now he is Trying to over turn my order that another judge put in place tut o make my son father happy I live in Westchester county the father lives in Brooklyn with his parents. Our son was born prematurely at 25 weeks weighing 1 lb and 6 ounces. I'm the one taking our son to doctors and therapy and early Intervention our son is 1 years old now. His father sees the child now every other weekend and when he does have his child his grandparents watch our son not his father. The father is in a motorcycle club and parties every weekend, I do everything for our son but he wants 50/50 for what. You lied to the court about visitation which he gets and we even talk about his having him on certain holiday and even a vacation. On top of my son father in our relationship used to beat up on me so I have a restraining order on him and his lawyer wants me to stay in a close radius to him I don't think so my address is also confidential now in the courts I'm afraid of his father I need advice.
Q:My ex-wife, after our divorce was finalized, made an Order to Show Cause in a New York Supreme Court to relocate and was successful; as such, she and our child moved out of state.. There was a hearing, and I fought the alleged merits to the move. The judge issued an "Interim Decision After Hearing". The judge set forth several conditions that my ex has to comply with, e.g. , proof of employment, proof that she came back to NY to visit between now and our next court appearance (which will be in March 2018, proof of pediatrician's treatment of child, proof of family's support in new locale and proof of compliance w/ other matters . If she succeeds in convincing the judge that she has complied, then the move will be made permanent. I WANT THE JUDGE TO ORDER THEM TO RELOCATE BACK TO NY because the family reneged on the promised support, the child is not seeing a doctor for a somewhat serious condition and more. I believe that the move was not made in the child's best interest. There is also new evidence, which is relevant, and very well might have changed the outcome of the decision that I'd like to submit, that I couldn't have known at the hearing, because they just came to light.

Q: I have been in a domestic violence relationship for 7 years and have a 6 year old child in common with the person. I finally decided to leave the relationship a month ago. I have told him to constantly leave me alone and he continues to bother me. He has threatened to show up anywhere i go, hurt me if i date someone else and also hurt the other person as well. Im thinking of getting an order of protection. However, my mom lives in the Caribbean and will have surgery in August. Will this stop my child and i from traveling internationally?
