White Plains Children And Divorce Attorney

Children often suffer greatly during divorce, and there are many sensitive issues that affect the children's needs and wishes. The children need someone who will be their voice in the divorce proceedings and who will advocate for their best interests.

In New York, attorneys are frequently appointed to represent children in family court matters, including custody and visitation proceedings. The attorney for the child speaks for the child's wishes and position in the dispute. As the child's voice in court, the attorney for the child is on the same footing as the attorneys for the parents. The attorney for the child participates in conferences, motions and oral arguments, presents evidence at trial, raises objections to testimony and documents offered by the other attorneys, and cross-examines the other parties' witnesses.
