Family Court Lawyers in Brooklyn
We Can Represent You at Your Family Court Hearing in New York City
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:
- Child abuse and neglect
- Child custody and visitation
- Domestic violence
- Juvenile delinquency
- Child support
- Spousal support
New York Family Court System
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.
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.
