In 2003, New York established the Integrated Domestic Violence Courts(IDV), designed to have a single judge preside over multiple cases between family members, where one of those cases involve criminal allegations. In the past, individuals had to deal with court appearances in different courthouses, with different judges often making conflicting decisions. You no longer have to jump through as many hoops.
This integrated legal system is unique. Consider investing in a highly skilled attorney familiar with the nuances of the various legal procedures involved. I represent clients dealing with simultaneous family and criminal issues in IDV Court. I have the skills and legal resources necessary to help you address all your divorce-related concerns, such as:
- Property division
- Spousal support (often referred to as alimony)
- Child custody and visitation
- Child support
At the same time, I will review the evidence against you to develop a strong defense against domestic violence charges. I will seek to uncover any evidence that can be used in your favor, as well as inconsistencies in the prosecution’s case against you. As a New York City Divorce Lawyer, I’m committed to protecting your constitutional rights, while seeking to mitigate the potential ramifications you face. I want to position you in the best light possible to try and protect all of your rights.
