Family Court Proceedings

Representation in Family Court Cases in Nassau County and Suffolk County on Long Island, Westchester County and in Queens, Kings, New York, Bronx and Richmond Counties

The protection of children from neglect and abuse in the State of New York is governed, in part, by the provisions of the Family Court Act. Accordingly, if you are involved in a CPS or ACS investigation, there is a significant likelihood that you may have to appear in Family Court to both defend yourself and attempt to keep your family together. Don’t take any unnecessary risks—if you are involved in any interaction with Child Protective Services (CPS) or Administration for Children’s Services (ACS), you want highly experienced, knowledgeable and effective legal counsel to protect you and your family. You want the Law Offices of Schlissel DeCorpo.
