Child Custody


An important aspect of any integrated matrimonial and family law practice is the ability to develop and litigate issues concerning child custody. Leitner & Getz LLP has a broad range of experience in the complex area of child custody that can benefit you and your children.

We have tried many custody cases to conclusion and pride ourselves on maintaining the highest standards in protecting children from the adverse effects and consequences of protracted matrimonial litigation. We are experienced with cases in which working with forensic psychologists, psychiatrists and attorneys for the children is critical to ascertain and advocate the result that is in the children’s best interests. For example, we recently secured an award of custody in favor of a 79 year old father in a contested litigation against a 54 year old mother, but only after the court concluded after trial that such a result was in the best interests of the child.
