Protect Your Family
Divorce is not just difficult for the adults, but is life changing for
the children involved as well. The legal team at Jonathan E. Edwards P.C.
understands that your children are the most important people in your lives,
and they can help you eliminate the impact of divorce on your family through
child custody, child custody modification, child support and more.
Joint custody can allow two parents to raise their child together and work
together to make decisions regarding their education, healthcare and religious
upbringing. If one parent is unfit, sole custody may be a better option
for the family. Sole custody provides one parent the ability to make all
of the decisions for the child.
If one parent has sole custody of the child, it may be advantageous for
the other parent to pursue his or her visitation rights. Visitation will
allow both parents to see their child without the decision-making powers
of joint custody. Because it is usually beneficial for children to have
a relationship with their parents, courts generally grant visitation in
cases of sole custody.
Rights for Family Members
If you are a father or grandparent who is interested in maintaining a relationship
with your children or grandchildren, our firm can assist you with your
fathers' rights and grandparents' rights issues. Sometimes divorces
can threaten your relationships with your children or grandchildren, but
we can help ensure that you receive fair treatment under New York law
for child custody, child support and visitation rights. If your child
is deemed an unfit parent, we can also help you seek custody of your grandchild.
