Family Law in Plainview, NY

To put it mildly, family law tends to deal with very sensitive subjects. It is arguably one of the most emotionally charged and interpersonally complex legal fields. The things that are dealt with in family law—things like marriage and divorce, custody and support, adoption and parental rights—are incredibly high-stakes for everyone involved. The decisions made in Family Court will often go on to define the rest of someone’s familial, romantic, and personal life for years to come.

As such, going through a family law issue is often very stressful and both emotionally and financially taxing, even in the best of circumstances. It poses unique challenges to families and the individuals within them—whether they are former spouses, parents and children, or close relations of another kind.

Handling this sort of issue requires a very high degree of emotional intelligence and empathy as well as the legal knowledge and skill to strategize and advocate effectively. This is why it is essential to hire a highly experienced, highly responsive family law attorney with a proven track record of effectiveness in family law cases.

In Plainview, New York, the right man for the job is Attorney Alan Finkel.

What can Attorney Alan Finkel help me with?

Attorney Finkel offers a full suite of family law services in Plainview, New York, with a wide range of sub-specialties and areas of focus. These include:

Divorce: Unfortunately, divorce is quite common. No matter how happy a couple may be as newlyweds, many marriages eventually reach an impasse over time, and the best thing to do for everyone involved is to end the marriage.

Attorney Finkel offers comprehensive divorce representation from the beginning to the end of the process. He will advocate tirelessly on your behalf, fighting for your best interests no matter how acrimonious or complex the divorce may be.

Alimony/Spousal Support: In a divorce, spousal support is generally designed to help lower-earning parties maintain their standard of living and, if possible, learn to support themselves post-divorce. It is usually granted for a certain length of time, or until either a drastic change in financial circumstances, death, or remarriage. Certain contracts, such as pre-nuptial and post-nuptial agreements, can delineate the terms of spousal support. In the absence of those documents, spousal support may be decided by the Court.

Attorney Finkel can help guide you through the landscape of spousal support, and will work to come to an agreement that works best for you. He can also help you put a pre-nuptial or post-nuptial agreement in place.

Child Custody/Visitation: If a divorcing or separating couple have children, issues relating to custody and visitation of the children becomes a major element of the divorce process. The State of New York has very specific laws governing how custody and visitation are decided, and Attorney Finkel can help you navigate those laws in order to secure your desired custody or visitation arrangement. Custody battles can be especially harrowing and unpleasant, especially if the divorcing couple is not on good terms. However, Mr. Finkel is dedicated to making the process as pain-free as possible, both for the sake of the parents and for the sake of the children involved.

Child Support: The State of New York holds that every child is entitled to financial support from both of their parents, and ensures that this happens with child support laws. Usually, child support involves one parent (often a non-custodial parent) making payments to a custodial parent. New York’s child support laws are complex, as is the process through which child support is calculated, a collected, and enforced.

Attorney Finkel can help you pursue a reasonable and fair child support arrangement that ideally benefits both parents, and—most importantly—the child. 

Adoption: If you are bringing a child into your family through adoption, you already know that the process can be extremely intricate and complicated. Attorney Finkel advocates for adoptive parents and their children, and guides them through the process of coming together legally and safely.
