Custody Issues for Non-Married Couples

New York Custody Issues for Unmarried Couples

There is perhaps no more contentious area of New York family law than child custody. When custody and child support issues involve non-married couples, the law is often murky, leaving parties on both sides frustrated and confused about how to resolve the issue fairly and in the child’s best interests.

New Paltz, New York, Father’s Rights Lawyer

I am New Paltz child custody lawyer Jonathan D. Katz. With more than 25 years of New York family law experience behind me, I have seen the courts in Orange County, Dutchess County and communities throughout the Hudson Valley take a dramatic shift. As local community values change, judges and social services professionals take different perspectives. Today, custody decisions regarding non-married parents are likely to be completely contrary to decisions made in the same courtroom just 10 years ago.

Work to Resolve Tough Issues Without Costly Litigation

In most cases involving non-married parents and custody, there is usually a middle ground that can be reached through skillful, resourceful negotiations. When it comes to custody matters, judges expect parties to do everything possible to alleviate animosity and work toward a reasonable solution. My law firm has earned respect among legal and social service professionals, and judges know that I put the child’s welfare first.
