Yonkers, New Rochelle, and White Plains Family Court Attorney

There are a wide variety of case types within the practice area of family law, each with its own set of rules.

Each case type has its own unique complexities, circumstances, and nuances. but all are legally, personally, and emotionally challenging for the individual family members involved and for the family as a whole.

It is worth noting that Divorce cases are heard in NY Supreme Court, not in Family Court.

As you might expect in such a heavily populated state, the Family Court system in New York is an extremely busy one.

In Westchester County, there are three Family Court locations: White Plains, Yonkers, and New Rochelle.

In New York City, there are five Family Courts, one for each individual borough: Bronx, Manhattan, Queens, Brooklyn (Kings County), and Staten Island.

In Rockland County, the Family Court is located in New City.

Among the matters that are heard in Family Courts in New York State:

With regard to Domestic Violence and Child Abuse and Neglect and contested Child Custody, the court must, by legal statute, always consider domestic violence and child abuse allegations in their decision to determine custody.

I offer my clients 24 years of Westchester County New York Divorce and Family Law attorney experience, including Litigated, Collaborative and Mediated Divorce and Family Law, Appeals and all child-related matters.

If you are in need of skilled, knowledgeable and vigorous legal representation for your particular family law issue, I look forward to working with you soon.
