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.

Assistance for Same-Sex Couples

As of 2011, same-sex couples can marry in the state of New York. The Marriage Equality Act has changed many of the laws for family matters for lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender couples. By staying up-to-date on partnership agreements, adoptions, donor insemination and more, we can provide excellent legal advice and counsel to you and your same-sex spouse. Our legal team is also prepared to assist transgender individuals obtain a divorce, modify existing child custody agreements, obtain child support, divide property and more.
