New York City Child Custody Attorneys

Establishing child custody and visitation rights can be one of the most challenging aspects of a divorce or separation. Even when parents are committed to working together to come to an agreement, discussions can quickly escalate to contested disputes. At Burger & Green, LLP, our highly experienced and knowledgeable family law attorneys work with clients to create parenting plans that are in the best interests of the children.

Parenting Plans

Parenting plans address where the child will live, who will make decisions regarding the child's health, education, religion and welfare, and the scheduling of the noncustodial parent's access to the child. When developing a parenting plan, our clients benefit from our extensive experience handling a diverse range of family law issues involving children. Attorney Barbara Burger is frequently appointed by the courts as a law guardian to represent children's interests in divorce proceedings and custody and visitation proceedings. Our experience also includes:

  • Child custody hearings
  • Establishing sole and joint custody
  • Parental alienation
  • Custody modifications
  • Custody enforcement
  • Parental/child relocation
  • International child abduction

Parental/Child Relocation

When a parent wishes to relocate with a child and the move will take the child away from his or her other parent, the relocating parent must obtain court approval. Many factors are considered in these complex cases. Whether you are seeking to move away with your child or you want to prevent your child from relocating, our lawyers can assist you. We have particular experience handling international relocation cases.
