Speaking Up For Your Parental Rights
Both parents are responsible for supporting the child after a divorce or after an unmarried couple separates. It is typically appropriate for one parent to provide child support to provide for the needs of the child.
In New York, child support is determined by a set of guidelines that include the number of children, the income of each parent and the needs of the children.
Whether you are seeking child support or paying it, it is important to have experienced family law representation. At the Law Office of Melanie M. Marmer, we have extensive experience handling child support matters and can provide you with the skilled representation you need.

Child Custody And Visitation
Some of the most contentious family law disputes involve child custody and visitation – in other words, where the children are to live and when the noncustodial parent will spend time with the children. Visitation schedules are typically very specific, detailing where the child spends weekends, holidays, summer vacations and other important days.
The governing principle in child custody cases is protecting the best interests of the child. With more than 30 years of experience, Melanie M. Marmer knows how courts are likely to rule on child custody cases. This allows her to guide her clients to resolutions that are truly in the child’s best interests.
Child support and child custody orders do not always stand the test of time. A significant change in circumstances can make existing legal orders unworkable. In such a situation, you can request modification of orders that better reflects the new reality.
Common reasons for modifications are job loss, relocation, health problems and other life-changing events. Whether you are seeking a modification or trying to stop an adverse one, our law firm can provide you with the strong representation you need.
