Best Interest of the Child in Queens

Excellence in Family Law Representation in Queens

The court determines child custody and visitation rights based solely on the best interests of the child. It does not automatically assume that the mother or father will be the better parent. If you are going through a divorce involving children, it is important to retain the services of a knowledgeable Queens divorce attorney. Donald Mastrodomenico has been representing clients in divorce and family law cases for over 100 years of combined experience.

Every year for the past 20 years, our firm has initiated more than 400 divorces. We have devoted our practice exclusively to representing clients in family law and divorce-related concerns. We offer a flat fee rate structure, with lower fees than most firms in the area. Our reasonable fee structure, extensive experience, and professional excellence have earned us many client referrals to family and friends.

We are highly respected professionals in the field of family law, and you can have confidence in the services we provide. We will always keep your child's best interests in mind and ensure that your concerns are taken into account.

Best Interest of the Child in Queens Custody Matters

The judge will take a number of factors into consideration when determining custody, and our experienced Queens divorce lawyer will implement an effective legal strategy for your case. We will consider the factors of the divorce, the child's relationship with each parent, the income of each parent, and the child's general health and well-being.

The court may consider, for each parent: age and health, availability to the child, mental and emotional stability, drug or alcohol abuse, and willingness to foster a relationship with the other parent. A child who is 12 years or older may have a say about which parent he or she lives with. It is important to remember, however, that a judge will always rule in the best interests of the child.
