Parental Rights

New York Parental Rights Attorney Helping Parents in New Paltz, Kingston, & Hudson ValleyInternational Parents Rights Lawyer

Parental rights and responsibilities extend beyond national borders.

If you are living abroad and seeking to assert or recover your custody rights regarding a child living in New York or another state, there are laws in place that can be used to recover your child. Those same laws can be used to prevent the removal of a child from the United States to another country in violation of the custody rights of a parent living in the U.S.

I represent clients in international child custody and visitation matters. My work includes:

  • Recovering custody of children who have been brought to the U.S. in violation of custody orders
  • Protecting the custody rights of a parent and child living in the U.S.
  • Asserting visitation rights with a child living in the U.S. for parents who live abroad

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.
