Family Law Practice Orange County NY
Because no two families are exactly alike, legal problems and issues faced by any given family require solutions that are tailored to that family’s unique situation and needs.
At Strauss & Kallus, we make use of the appropriate legal strategy or technique that we believe will achieve a satisfying outcome, meet and respect our client’s needs, and do so without sacrificing our client’s dignity in the process.
If you live in New York and are interested in seeking custody of a child or seeking child support, completing an adoption or obtaining an order of protection, Family Court has jurisdiction. The Supreme Court in New York has jurisdiction over divorce or division of assets, as well as custody and child support when those issues arise in conjunction with a divorce.
We take fear of the legal system and confusion about the law out of the equation for our clients throughout Orange County and the surrounding areas of New York. We replace those things with the answers and information clients need to make good legal decisions for themselves, with compassion and with a respect for the client’s dignity and all involved. Our New York family law practice includes:
Child Abuse and Neglect
Family Law Appeals
Our law firm strives to provide the right legal solution for each individual client. For example, filing a custody petition certainly requires knowledge of the law. But knowledge of the law alone is insufficient without sensitivity to the needs of the child and the other parties involved as well.
Along similar lines, juvenile delinquency charges require a passionate defense of a child’s rights to prevent serious consequences. Frequently, the services of a mental health or substance abuse professional may also be called for to truly help that child.
Our goal is to protect the rights and interests of our clients and their children. In matters of divorce law, child custody, and division of marital property, we are often able to achieve positive results through negotiation, mediation or collaborative law. However, litigation is sometimes unavoidable and in those cases, clients can rely on our years of extensive trial practice in the New York courts and our proven ability to achieve results there as well.
