Comprehensive New York Family Law Practice
No matter what needs you have when it comes to New York family law issues, you can count on the Law Office of Joshua Adam Kittenplan to provide you with informed, practical guidance, professional assistance, and effective representation from the negotiation table to the courtroom. Call our office for help with any family law matter in Long Island, including the following:
Whether based on no-fault or fault, we’ll guide you through the process smoothly and successfully. If your divorce is uncontested, we’ll help keep it that way by using skilled negotiation and mediation methods to create a marital settlement agreement that meets your needs. For contested matters or high-conflict situations, our experienced litigator is ready to provide strong and effective representation in the courtroom.
If you are seeking full custody or sharing parenting responsibilities jointly with your child’s other parent, the Law Office of Joshua Adam Kittenplan will build a strong case for physical and legal custody based on the many factors considered by judges making custody decisions. We’ll fight for a result that meets your needs and reflects your child’s best interests.
Child support guidelines are presumed to calculate a correct amount, but parents are free to agree to a different amount or ask the court to impose something different. Our skilled divorce and child custody lawyer will make sure child support is being calculated correctly and provide knowledgeable and effective advocacy if seeking or opposing a deviation from the guidelines amount.
Spousal support, aka alimony or maintenance, can be granted during divorce proceedings and ordered to last for years afterward. Whether you are asking for support or being asked to pay, we’ll see that you are taken care of and not taken advantage of and that your specific needs are met.
If it’s been several years since the divorce or circumstances have substantially changed, such as a change in income or needs, one party or the other might go back to court looking for a modification of court orders. We know the law and the factors the court will look at when analyzing a petition to modify; count on our Long Island family law office to provide practical advice and insightful advocacy when you are seeking or opposing a modification to child support or other court orders.
Same-Sex Marriage & Domestic Partnerships
The Law Office of Joshua Adam Kittenplan is a proud, long-time supporter of the Long Island LGBT community. We understand the unique issues same-sex couples face when it comes to marriage, divorce, domestic partnerships, custody, adoption, and prenuptial and postnuptial agreements. We are here to listen, get to know you and understand your concerns, and provide advice and representation that is responsive to your needs.
Prenuptial and Postnuptial Agreements
At our Long Island family law firm, we believe that every couple can benefit from a prenuptial or postnuptial agreement, particularly if there is a large disparity in wealth between the partners, business interests or separate property to protect, a previous divorce, or a blended family with children from a prior relationship. We’ll negotiate, draft and review a valid and enforceable agreement that protects your rights and meets your needs, as well as litigate challenges to implementation as needed.
Adoption can be an incredibly exciting event that provides you the opportunity to start or expand your family. Adoption can also be complicated and time-consuming without legal help, and it can be frustrating or heartbreaking to invest a great deal of time and effort and come up empty-handed. The Law Office of Joshua Adam Kittenplan can help you and your family have a smoother adoption process, whether it is a step-adoption, nonbiological parent adoption or same-sex adoption.
Orders of Protection
If you’ve been the victim of domestic violence, stalking, reckless endangerment, assault, attempted assault, or any other conduct that threatens your well-being, we can help you get an order of protection that keeps the abusive person away from you and your children. Our office is skilled and experienced in securing orders of protection and fighting against unjust orders in divorce cases, child custody disputes, and stand-alone proceedings.
