Custody, Visitation and Parenting Time

Child Custody, Visitation and Parenting Time Lawyer

Staten Island — New York — New Jersey

Child custody, visitation and parenting time rights are more than just a "part of the divorce process." Issues dealing with minor children are often one of the most difficult parts of a divorce.

At the family and divorce Law Offices of Jay S. Baum our goal is to help you identify and achieve your full child custody, visitation and parenting time rights. Our clients frequently express fear of becoming "weekend parents." We have fought for the rights of thousands of parents to be as involved as they would like in the lives and upbringing of their children after their divorce is finalized.

Jay Baum is Dedicated to Fighting for Your Custody and Visitation Rights.

When determining child custody, visitation and parenting time questions, the courts take into account the best interest of the child. Frequent questions are: Who is the primary caretaker? Who is the child emotionally attached to? Who is better equipped to provide a stable and nurturing environment?

Issues relating to drug and alcohol abuse and domestic violence can also arise. No matter what the circumstances of your situation, attorney Jay Baum can meet with you, discuss your concerns and goals, and work with you to devise a strategy to pursue your objectives and create family arrangements that will best benefit your child.

If the parent/child relationship changes, for instance, the child is struggling in school, a parent wants to relocate or is abusing drugs or alcohol, then we can work to modify arrangements to better serve the child and the needs of the parents.
