Queens Child Custody Attorneys Protect Your Parental Relationship

Custody lawyers assist clients in Nassau and Queens Counties

Before your marriage is dissolved, you cannot know how your divorce will affect the close bond between you and your child. The caring Queens County child custody attorneys at Sager Gellerman Eisner Attorneys at Law work hard to help you maintain a strong relationship with your child after your divorce. With our 85 years of collective experience in child custody matters, we build a strong case for a custody arrangement that benefits you and your child.

Helping your child during a custody contest

No one needs a survival plan more than your child during a custody dispute. Our Queens attorneys provide perspective, advice and representation to fight for what’s best for you and your child. We connect you with child specialists to assess your child’s needs. Whenever possible, we work for a negotiated agreement that benefits all parties. The Nassau County lawyers at Sager Gellerman Eisner protect your parenting rights as well as your child’s right to a stable, healthy childhood.

Designing a road map for your child’s future

For children, divorce is not simply a one-time event. It may be a significant factor throughout their childhood. The issues we can help you resolve include:

  • Whether one parent will get full custody
  • Whether and how custody will be shared
  • Educational choices for your child
  • Your child’s religious upbringing
  • Your child’s future educational costs
  • Your child’s activities during weekends and vacations
  • Other relatives’ roles in your child’s life, particularly grandparent custody rights
  • Child support needs

With guidance from our Queens County lawyers, you can minimize the legal wrangling and reach solutions that foster your child’s future happiness. In the coming years, we help you with custody modifications and relocation requests.

Protecting the rights of both mothers and fathers

Though times are changing, the default position for some courts is to favor the rights of mothers over those of fathers. We have helped numerous fathers obtain the court orders they deserve. Examples include:

  • In one of our notable cases, the mother claimed that the child’s learning disability required institutional care. The father argued against institutionalization, citing the limiting effect it could have on the child’s future. Our Queens County lawyers convinced the court that awarding child custody to the father would be in the best interests of the child.
  • In another custody case, we argued successfully for the father’s rights. Our attorneys convinced the court that the father, who had a flexible work schedule, was more involved in the daily lives of the children than the mother was.
