Family Court 

New York Family Court Lawyers in Brooklyn

We Can Represent You at Your Family Court Hearing

The Family Court of the state of New York has the authority to decide cases affecting the lives of children and families.

Family Court judges hear a wide range of cases, including:

Each of the five boroughs of New York City and every surrounding county has its own family court. A case must be filed in the county where one of the parties lives. Judges preside over most family court hearings. At Arnel Law Firm, we represent clients in these hearings, and we also frequently appear before support magistrates and referees. There are no jury trials.

The family court does not have jurisdiction to grant individuals a divorce or deal with property division. Divorce proceedings must be brought in the Supreme Court in the state of New York.

Call us at 718-550-3024 for representation during your family court hearing.

Trust Our Knowledgeable Family Law Attorneys

Individuals who file a petition or attend a hearing in a New York Family Court have the option to represent themselves, but that frequently becomes a frustrating and unsuccessful ordeal.

You may feel comfortable representing yourself if you:

  • Know how to cross-examine a witness
  • Understand what forms of evidence are required by the court
  • Know what is sufficient to meet evidentiary standards in family court
  • Know how to address the judge or a support magistrate during the court proceedings

If you do not have a firm grasp on any one of these things, it is wise to retain an experienced attorney. You can find a trusted advocate at Arnel Law Firm.

We provide aggressive and accomplished legal counsel for a wide range of family law matters. Our Brooklyn family court lawyers have built compelling cases that get results for more than 35 years.

Founding attorney, Curt Arnel, has focused on family law for his entire legal career. We take a personable approach with clients and a no-nonsense attitude in court. One key to our long track record of success is the immense preparation we put into every case. In court, there is no substitution for being prepared.

Combining Experience with Excellence

Our decades of experience have allowed us to learn the personalities and preferences of most family court judges. We study how each judge approaches a case and what sort of evidence he or she wants to see. We use that familiarity and experience to craft the approach we believe will be most likely to achieve a favorable outcome.

We have also established strong relationships with education professionals, child psychologists, and other specialists who can bolster your case by testifying on your behalf.

We welcome the opportunity to review the facts of your case during a free consultation. We'll answer your questions and recommend the best steps to take.
