Staten Island Family & Divorce Law Attorney

Divorce and other family law challenges require individuals and families to manage complex and unfamiliar legal processes at an emotionally difficult time. Spouses must effectively complete their separation or divorce through complicated and multi-stepped family law legal proceedings. Parents must agree to child support, child custody and visitation rights, or fight for their rights and goals in court. Victims of physical and sexual abuse must use laws against domestic violence to protect themselves while simultaneously navigating family law and divorce courts.

At the law offices of Jay S. Baum we provide caring and personal legal services to each client. We realize that divorce often involves decisions about what is most important to you — your quality of life, your children and the property you have spent much of your life acquiring.

We cooperate with opposing counsel when possible to expedite your legal matter, save you money and lessen the stress and anxiety that legal battles can bring. At the same time, we provide aggressive family law legal representation whenever necessary to protect your rights.
