At the Perlmutter Law Firm, located in Jamaica, Queens, we handle all types of Family Law cases throughout New York City, including Queens, Manhattan, Brooklyn, Bronx, and Staten Island, as well as Nassau and Suffolk Counties. Family law consists of a body of statutes and case precedents that govern the legal responsibilities between individuals who share a domestic connection. These cases usually involve parties who are related by blood or marriage, but family law can affect those in more distant or casual relationships as well. Due to the emotionally-charged nature of most family law cases, litigants are strongly advised to retain legal counsel. Please contact the Perlmutter Law Firm to schedule a consultation.
The Perlmutter Law Firm also handles Matrimonial/Divorce Law cases throughout New York City, Nassau, and Suffolk Counties. Divorce (or the dissolution of marriage) is the termination of a marital union, the cancelling and/or reorganizing of the legal duties and responsibilities of marriage, thus dissolving the bonds of matrimony between a married couple under the rule of law of the particular country and/or state. These proceedings can be complex and usually require an experienced attorney to help guide an individual through the process. At the Perlmutter Law Firm, we can help.
At the Perlmutter Law Firm, we have a depth of knowledge in handling cases where a minor is seeking to obtain legal status. This can be done through a Special Immigration Juvenile Status (also known as SIJS) application. These types of cases usually require appearances in both Family Court and Immigration Court. Immigration law refers to the rules established by the federal government for determining who is allowed to enter the country, and for how long. It also governs the naturalization process for those who desire to become U.S. citizens. These matters require an attorney with experience and understanding as to how to help an individual throughout the proceedings. Please contact the Perlmutter Law Firm for a consultation.
