Custody Support

Child Custody Lawyer in Ulster CountyKingston Child Support Attorney and Visitation Lawyer Helping Families in New Paltz, Hudson Valley, & Ulster County

Serving Kingston NY, Ulster County and the rest of New York: Joint Custody, Visitation Agreements – When parents separate or divorce in New York, child custody and visitation rights must be legally determined by way of a court order. The child custody order may be incorporated into a divorce decree, or if the parents are not married, it will be a stand-alone court order. Separated or divorcing parents often need clarification on the legal and practical meaning of child custody arrangements including the following:

  • Joint custody (co-parenting): This is the default arrangement that family law judges expect to be the norm.

  • Sole custody: This may be ordered when one parent is unable or unwilling to assume parenting responsibilities.

Client Reviews
I was living a nightmare of being falsely accused in a judicial system that considers all fathers to be dead beat dads until proven innocent. Living out of state and facing the possibility of jail, I miraculously found Jon’s website and called his office. Within a week the tables were turned, the lies were exposed, and the harassment was stopped. If you need someone that will challenge the system, then you need Jonathan Katz. Greg Weaver
Jon’s integrity towards his clients is what makes him a standout attorney. He makes it a priority to know what's important to you. You’re not just a number. He is upfront with you right from the start. He will not string you along just for his financial benefit. He is only willing to settle the case if that's truly what you want. Anytime I called him I received a call back from him that day. Not someone else in the office. He is an attorney that has a passion for what's important to his clients. John Morrissey
Being a single mom, I had enough stress in my life. I had no idea how to go about protecting myself. My daughters were my priority. Jon walked me through the process. He turned a difficult time into a workable solution. Diane Chiriani
Jon thinks well, works to be clear and honest. He works to get to a strong argument. He seems to have a good working relationship with everybody at the courthouse. I get the feeling he has no trouble thinking like a judge. He is friendly and courteous. He doesn't overbill. He takes and returns calls promptly. His legal staff is friendly and competent. What's not to like? Rick S.
I liked that there was always transparency throughout my case. Genevieve H.
