Out of State Child Custody

Ulster County New York Out of State Visitation Lawyer – Child Custody Attorney in Kingston NYSome Divorce Issues Extend Beyond State Lines

Some Divorce Issues Extend Beyond State Lines – As the world continues to shrink in size, divorced parents more frequently need advice about problems related to out-of-state child support obligations or visitation arrangements. At the law firm of Jonathan D. Katz, Attorney at Law, I help parents protect their interests no matter where they or their children live, provided that a family court in New York State has or can assert jurisdiction.

Contact me to learn about my experience with international and interstate family law issues. I serve clients in Kingston NY and throughout the rest of New York, including Ulster, Dutchess, Orange, Greene, Columbia, Rensselaer, Schenectady, Saratoga, Schoharie, and Albany counties.

Do You Need Advice About International Enforcement of Your Rights?

It can be confusing enough to resolve family law matters when you live within a mile of the courthouse. If you live in a distant state or overseas, it can be especially difficult to maintain court-ordered visitation or support rights that were originally established in New York’s Hudson Valley or Catskill region. The Hague Convention is helpful for international cases but choosing the right child custody attorney is important.

I advise divorced spouses about such long-distance family law problems as the following:

  • Locating your child out of state in parental abduction cases
  • Protecting your visitation arrangements with a Hudson Valley child when you live in another state or country
  • Enforcing child support or alimony rights against a former spouse when one party lives here and the other lives far away
  • Maintaining a relationship with a child who lives out-of-state with your former spouse

Federal law treaties provide for the remote enforcement of local divorce decrees and child custody or visitation arrangements. If either you or your former spouse and child maintain a current residence in the Poughkeepsie-New Paltz-Kingston area, or elsewhere in the Hudson Valley, Catskill, or Capitol region, I can explain the procedures for enforcing or modifying the commitments established in a New York State divorce.

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.
