Sole Legal Custody Awarded to Our Client, a Non-Parent!

Our Client Obtains Sole Legal and Physical Custody!! – May 2011

Martin + Colin, P.C. announces that it has obtained sole legal and physical custody of a six year old child for our client, the child’s aunt, effective immediately. The case was especially difficult because the aunt sought to take custody away from the child’s mother (i.e., the aunt’s own sister), and New York State law requires that a petitioner must demonstrate the existence of extraordinary circumstances in order for that petitioner to be awarded custody away from a parent.

The case was venued in Family Court, Westchester County under Docket No.: V-14918-2010

Martin + Colin, P.C. handles domestic relations and family law matters, including:

  • contested divorces;
  • custody and child support cases;
  • adoptions;
