By increasing the scope of its child custody services, the firm can help parents understand the differences between sole custody, joint legal custody with residential custody to one spouse, and joint legal custody with shared physical custody.

The attorneys at Badanes Law Office understand that child custody is one of the most difficult and emotionally charged issues in a divorce. In accordance with the doctrine of the best interests of the child, the firm’s principal attorney David Badanes works with each client to assess the facts of the case.

At a custody trial, the judge will consider factors such as the child’s primary caregiver, a parent’s ability to provide emotional, mental and financial support, the child’s current living arrangements, any history of violence or abuse by a parent, and a parent’s willingness to encourage the child to maintain a relationship with the noncustodial parent. Badanes will address these factors and paint his client in the most favorable light.

The firm also helps its noncustodial parent clients calculate their child support payment amounts. Its lawyers will point out any possible deductions clients can make from their gross income, and explain the percentage they must pay in child support. They can also seek child support reductions when a client’s financial situation changes due to job loss or salary cuts.

David Badanes has over ten years of experience in family law. He can handle uncontested and contested divorces, child custody matters, prenuptial agreements, property divisions, and more. Badanes Law Office services clients in Melville, Northport, Huntington, Commack, Brentwood, and Smithtown.

A satisfied client said, “Excellent service. Took my calls personally every single time and took the time to go over the details of my case in depth with the utmost professionalism. I highly recommend David for any needed legal assistance.”
