Child Visitation Orders in Suffolk County

Divorces can be very difficult and in some cases, they can pull families apart. There are a number of different issues that can arise within families after divorce, including when a hostile family member no longer gets to see a child of the divorced couple. Of course, this can be devastating for both the child and the family member. When it comes to child visitation orders in New York, it is important to understand what the court will and will not permit.

Who can request visitation?

Often, when an individual wishes to spend time with a child that they once used to see regularly prior to the divorce, they may want to request visitation. In order to do so, the individual must request an Order for Visitation through the court, if the custodial parent won’t allow them to see the child. This is often the case when sole custody has been awarded. It is important to be aware that only certain family members are permitted to request visitation. This includes parents, grandparents, and siblings. Unfortunately, aunts, uncles, stepparents, and cousins are not permitted to request an Order for Visitation regardless of how close the bond is between the individual and the child.

What Our Clients Are Saying

I hired Susan to represent me in a divorce matter where I was fighting for custody and to limit my wife's equitable share of our assets. I won custody of our son, kept the marital residence, kept my professional practice, kept my building and paid less than half to my wife. This was after a long-term marriage. She could persuade the court that equitable is not equal and sometimes the man does deserve to win!

I first must say that I had been represented by two prior attorneys both of whom had simply taken my money and left me nothing to show for it in my custody case. They kept telling me what they were doing for me but I found out they were lying. Susan on the other hand had gotten me temporary custody and support for my children and myself within two months of hiring her. I cannot say enough about her.

‐ Craig

After talking to a few other attorneys, I hired Susan to represent me in my divorce and custody dispute. I was reluctant to go with her because she was the cheapest out of all the other attorneys I met with, but I'm so glad I did. I am 100% positive no one else would have done such a great job with my case as Susan and her staff. Her work is quality, her staff is reliable and her character is honorable. There...

‐ Linda

I had a very difficult case where I had already burned through two attorneys who were unable to get me custody of my children and complete my divorce. Susan was able to rapidly work out an agreement and not let it just malinger on like my previous experiences. She was also considerate of my financial situation unlike all of the other lawyers I had spoken to. I highly recommend her if you want complete and caring service with an in-depth knowledge of...
