Manhattan Child Visitation Lawyers

Manhattan Child Visitation Lawyers Will Help People From All Walks Of Life

When people think of Manhattan child visitation lawyers, they immediately think of expensive consultations and costly retainer fees. However, many attorneys in Manhattan gear their prices towards the price of living. Additionally, there are many programs in Manhattan today that offer free attorney services to those in poverty. Having a lawyer in the midst of a custody battle is extremely parent for many reasons.

Manhattan child visitation lawyers are primarily used by people going through a divorce. Dealing with the marital residence, vehicles, and other property, people can easily become confused when it comes to custody. A judge will put together an order that deals with who gets custody, overnight visits, visitation on major holidays, and more. This is especially tricky if the other party in the case has an attorney. The attorney for the other party might try to swindle the individual with no attorney. Another reason why it’s good to have a lawyer is that it shows the judge some type of commitment on the part of the parent. When a judge sees a parent enter a custody hearing with a lawyer, the judge knows that parent is taking this situation seriously. If the parent was not taking the situation seriously, they would have never spent money on an attorney in the first place.

Manhattan child visitation lawyers are also great when it comes to helping parents get back on track. Parents mess up from time to time, especially those with extremely rough lives. Just because a parent fell victim to drugs or alcohol does not mean they are bad parents. It means they just need a little help from the positive side of their society. Manhattan child visitation lawyers can sit down with parents and get a better understanding of their situation. A lawyer can then meet with a judge and the other parent(s) involved. This will begin the process of reunification and visitation. New York once had the highest rates of foster children in America. Since attorneys began working parents who lost their children to the system, the number of foster care cases has dropped by 50 percent.

When a parent wants to get his/her child out of the legal system, there are many things they must accomplish. These include completing drug and alcohol counseling, traditional counseling, and more. Parents can find these tasks overwhelming, especially since most parents in New York work two jobs. However, a Manhattan child visitation lawyer will know all the programs that are available, and, if the situation is a serious one, they may be able to move parents through the waiting list. Someone who has fell victim to drugs may also find it intimidating when addressing a judge, so Manhattan child visitation lawyers will be perfect for this situation.

Another great way Manhattan child visitation lawyers helped the public is by assisting grandparents with the filing of visitation rights. Most grandparents do not realize the truth of grandparents rights or their complexity. In reality, every state in America has some type of grandparents rights. The problem is the paperwork for grandparents rights is different from traditional custody paperwork. This why an attorney is needed for this process. To make grandparents rights easier, most states will not put a child in foster care or bring them into the system if their grandparents are alive and local. Majority of states now require children who are without parents to stay with a grandparent(s) before making a decision on foster care. In 2017 alone, over 10,000 grandparents received full and legal custody of their grandchildren.

One more way Manhattan child visitation lawyers help is by assisting people who come from out of state. On a weekly basis, people from all over New York come to Manhattan to file for custody of one or more children who live in Manhattan. Of course, this is easier said than done. There is a lot of paperwork that must be filled out for anyone coming from out of state who wants to file for custody. Being that a lot of the paperwork is confusing, it is best to hire a lawyer when dealing with this situation. A lawyer will be able to draw up paperwork from his/her own office. This will help everyone in the end.

Child visitation is one of the central issues when a couple is divorcing or after the divorce is finalized. Visitation with a biological child is not a privilege for either the parent or the child. It is a right of both to be able to maintain a good relationship regardless of other issues when a family divides. Many times the custodial parent will attempt to connect visitation with other issues such as child support, but the truth is these are separate issues and problems like child support delinquency are not acceptable reasons for the custodial parent to be difficult or deny the other parent an opportunity to visit with their child. Visitation rights are always addressed by the court during a divorce proceeding and visitation instructions must be followed directly according to the stipulations of the order. Our divorce professionals at Spodek Law Group understand this problem and are always focused on the parental rights of both the child and parent when visitation is being denied.

Parenting Plan

New York is one of the states that encourages all divorcing couples to submit a feasible parenting plan when filing a divorce. This is done in all typical divorces and is viewed by the court as a sign of amiable attitude between the parents. However, even when a parenting plan is provided and agreed upon, problems can still arise that result in visitation being a difficult issue when one parent refuses to comply with order or relocation is a necessity for one parent. When it appears a potential problem is looming or has already occurred, parenting plans can still be modified with court approval. We understand that ongoing relationships between parents and children are important and we are always available to help our clients work these problems out within the New York City family court system.

Denied Visitation

Visitation orders are valid instructions from the court issuing the order and failure to comply with the order can result in a contempt of court charge for either party, depending on the circumstances. The party who has been denied visitation according to the order must petition the non-compliant parent to court for a reevaluation of the visitation order and examining if a contempt of court charge applies. Our attorneys at Spodek Law Group know how to craft a petition for visitation compliance evaluation and monitoring, including modification of a parenting plan or visitation order.

Emergency Visitation Suspension

Sometimes there are extenuating circumstances that can result in a parent’s visitation rights being suspended until any particular situation can be alleviated. There is a variety of situations when this could occur, such as inability to properly care for the child during the visitation period. When parents actually have the child visiting in their home they must be able to provide for the safety and welfare of the child during that time, and children do have the right to refuse visitation in certain situations like this. In addition, parents who experience legal problems may also have their visitation suspended temporarily. We understand that calamities often happen within a family unit and will work diligently with our clients for a successful legal resolution concerning the visitation rights of all involved parties.

I was hesitant to hire the Spodek Law Group. I read reviews and knew they have a great reputation. However, I thought I would spend money and not see or speak to my attorney. From the beginning to end of my case Todd and the entire staff were available and willing to help. We worked towards and end result that was way above my expectation and Todd delivered. I am forever grateful for patience and long days and night spent working on my case. Thanks Todd and the entire team!

My attorney at Spodek was Abigail. She was very knowledgeable and helpful with all my questions and concerns, as well as responsive. Her fees are affordable and Abigail took the time to make sure I understood everything relating to my case. I highly recommend Abigail and will request her services in the future.

I'm very satisfied with the services rendered by Todd, Alex and Mary Lou. I whole heartedly recommend Spodek Law Group . I've worked with and have retained other attorneys in the past with Todd's firm being the cream of the crop for many reasons. A very serious legal matter was resolved after a year's hard work and effort. Todd expertly guided me through the process and was able to navigate and make the good journey bearable as well as successful. Mary Lou initially provided excellent assistance before referring my case to Todd. Alex's support was effective and timely. The customer portal (MyCase) is an invaluable communication tool that also kept track of my case. Various aspects of my case were explained and there were several options provided but I made the final decision of how the case would be handled. The legal fee was reasonable considering the effort and amount of work plus it was a flat fee regardless of the length of time required to conclude my case. Todd made himself available to me and we had many scheduled meetings to go over the progress and to discuss the next steps. I felt more confident after many discussions with him. You will not go wrong choosing Spodek Law Group for legal matters.

Being that it was the first time that I was in need of an attorney, I was afraid and hesitant and knew I needed the absolute best. It is beyond understood why Spodek Law Group has a reputation of being the top, if not the best law firm in New York. Alex and Abigail were there every step of the way even at the most unconvenient hours. I could not have asked for more. They are extremely good at what they do and they delivered much much more than just winning my case. A big thank you to Alex and Abigail for all the guidance and counseling and their upmost loyal support that extended far more than just legally. If you need the absolute best than don't hesitate to hire Spodek Law Firm.

I cannot tell you how thankful I am to Todd and Alex for their hard work and dedication to my case. I had never been in any trouble before but I had an unfortunate event occur and in the midst of COVID-19 at that therefore I knew I needed a team that was dedicated to my success. Today- my case has been finalized and I’m walking away with no record and can continue life as a mother and a Grad student worry free. I cannot express enough gratitude for their assistance.
