Established New York Lawyers Manage Child Custody Disputes

Experienced attorneys assist parents in the Hudson Valley resolve critical child custody issues

If you are at odds with your child’s other parent about where your child should live, how much time they should spend with each parent or how they should be raised, it is essential to seek the advice of a qualified Family Law attorney. The counselors at Matula- Evans Law can present your case and advocate for your rights to raise your child in a healthy, thriving environment. We represent parents in throughout the Hudson Valley. Above all else, our law firm is committed to protecting your child’s best interests while upholding your parental bond.

Strategic negotiators work for fair parenting time agreements

Children are best served when parents maintain a cordial relationship. Through structured negotiations, couples can often set aside hostility and agree on key decisions affecting their children. These meetings can be a highly effective tool for parents to preserve their children’s well-being and the stability of their lives during the turbulent process of divorce: it takes some of the stress out of child custody conflicts and puts important child-rearing decisions in the hands of the parents rather than the court. Our attorneys use specific strategies to guide the negotiation process toward a healthy resolution.

Skilled litigators represent parents in family court

In some cases, litigation is necessary to protect a child’s best interests. When one parent will not compromise or expresses hostility toward the other parent, negotiations fail. Sometimes a parent may even pose a danger to the child’s well-being. In these cases, litigation is the most appropriate forum for establishing parental rights. Our firm’s methodical approach to litigation enables our clients to feel confident that their children are protected and their parental rights are secure. The attorneys at Matula- Evans Law represent clients in matters related to:

  • Primary and joint custody arrangements
  • Visitation rights
  • Grandparent visitation
  • Modification of custody and visitation orders
  • Enforcement of orders
  • Juvenile delinquency and dependency proceedings
  • Decisions related to religion, education and upbringing of the child

The uncertainty of litigation can be stressful for parents and children alike. As your Counsel, we will address all of your concerns and those of your family in cases involving the custody of your children.
