Family law is considered as one of the most significant areas of law because sooner or later almost everyone faces it. What if one of such situations will affect you, one of your family members, or maybe your close friend?

ADOPTION: Thinking about adopting a child? Do you know all the details of the adoption law in your state? And in the state in which a child will be adopted? Maybe a child you want to adopt is from another country? What are your rights and what are rights of people who are its biological parents? These questions are tough, and answering them demands a skilled attorney with a deep understanding of family law issues. Besides, it is better if he or she also has court experience.

CHILD CUSTODY: There are some different types of child custody, for example, sole custody, shared or joint custody, and others, and each of them differs from the others in some details. Trying to handle such complicated issues as child support alone without any legal consultation is a bad idea. Such situations demand the help of a great family lawyer, who can offer you legal advice on how to deal with your case effectively. New York family lawyers at the Law Office of Yelena Sharova P.C. are well experienced and familiar with child custody law. If you need a dedicated child custody lawyer do not hesitate to contact one of our offices in New York, Edison, or Newark. Our family lawyers will explain you all the differences between various types of a custody and help to choose the one that suits your case best. After that, we will make a step-by-step plan of future actions.

DIVORCE: Under New York State divorce law, to be granted a divorce, you need to have what is called a “legally acceptable reason”. That is not hard to prove under state divorce law because you just need to show that the relationship between you and your spouse is irreparably broken for at least six months. So if you really want to leave a relationship, as experienced divorce lawyers for men and women and as divorce attorneys, we can help you make it happen quickly. In addition, did you know that if you can prove adultery or abandonment, you can also get a divorce? As seasoned divorce attorneys familiar with family law and are ready and with access to investigators who can help make the case for you.

DOMESTIC VIOLENCE: It is also important and sometimes an extremely difficult area of family law. In New York State, domestic violence means some threatening or violent actions committed by individuals who are engaged in family relations somehow. Accusing of domestic violence crimes means serious criminal prosecution and some additional consequences, such as getting a restraining order.

FATHER’S RIGHTS: Sometimes you require professional legal assistance to prove your father’s rights. The old-style presumption that child custody should be given to mothers is not working anymore, but still, most of the custody battles are won by women. If you are dividing child custody rights with your former spouse, the New York Family Court will handle this dispute as a component of your divorce case. That means you should get a seasoned family law attorney to represent your best interests in a court. Fathers’ custody rights lawyers at the Law Office of Yelena Sharova P.C. are able to prove to a court prosecutor that choosing you as custodial is in child’s best interests.
