New York Emergency Situation & Visitation Agreement Lawyers Helping Families in Ulster, Orange, & Dutchess County

Life happens quickly, and even the best non-custodial parents need to make arrangements to see their children outside of the usual parenting schedule. Unfortunately, custodial parents don’t always agree and throw up roadblocks to emergency visitation or special arrangements. If you are a non-custodial parent in New York who is seeking a special arrangement for parenting time because of an emergency or urgent change of events, you have legal options available to you.

Saugerties Child Custody Lawyer Serving Kingston, Hudson Valley, & the Cat Skills

At the law offices of Jonathan D. Katz, you will find compassionate, vigorous representation to help you get the parenting time you seek. The courts are not unreasonable. In many cases, family law judges recognize unreasonable objections and will consider special arrangements, even when they are against the will of the custodial parent.

Some possible reasons the courts approve emergency visitation and special parenting arrangements include:

  • Call to military service
  • Serious illness or injury
  • Impending death of the child’s grandparent
  • Custodial parent has entered into an unhealthy lifestyle or relationship
  • Serious illness or injury to the child’s step-sibling or stepparent

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.
