FAMILY LAW

Child Abuse and Neglect

Charges of child abuse and neglect are often raised within the context of a custody dispute. Sometimes, such proceedings are initiated in Family Court when no divorce action is pending. Frequently these allegations are serious and have merit. On occasion, they are falsified by one spouse in an effort to gain an advantage in a custody proceeding. Our skilled New York attorneys can help you address these matters whether your spouse is harming your child, or whether unfounded allegations of abuse or neglect have been brought against you.
