Divorce Lawyer

Contested and Uncontested Divorce

Since divorces are often fueled by emotion, many times one spouse can become angry with the other due to hurt feelings or a loss of trust.

At Jackson Bergman we try our best to help you take your emotions out of the situation and find a way for you to get what you want and what you deserve without going down the road to a contested divorce. We do, however, realize that in certain circumstances an uncontested divorce is impossible and in that event our lawyers have the courtroom experience and knowledge of divorce law in New York State to navigate the complex laws regarding custody rights, property assets, and bank accounts that will undoubtedly come into question. You can rest assured our team of trial tested New York divorce attorneys can help you in a time when you’re feeling most vulnerable and anxious and give you the peace of mind you need to move forward with your case, and move forward with your life.

Child Abuse/Allegations Attorney

Child Abuse/Allegations

Our community has an important responsibility to protect innocent children from suffering abuse and neglect at the hands of parents or caregivers.  Understanding this responsibility, our lawyers are also aware that false reports of child abuse can cause just as much harm to the child and all parties involved in the false allegation.  Once such a false allegation of child abuse is made, it can be incredibly difficult to defend yourself and put the incident behind you.  Our experienced attorneys are knowledgeable on the laws governing the CPS and DDS and are fully committed to ensuring false reports of child abuse won’t continue to haunt you as you move forward with your life after a false allegation is filed.

Family Offense Petitions Lawyer

Family Offense Petitions

Family offense petitions can be an important tool used by the courts in situations where a spouse or partner is concerned of violence by the other.  This is especially the case in homes where there is a history of such violence.  It is an unfortunate fact that family offense petitions can be filed unjustly in cases where revenge or anger cause emotions to run high.  The results of such a petition can be devastating to a parent, especially in the event where the parent is not allowed to return home to see their children.  Our experienced family offense petition lawyers aggressively fight for you in the event a family offense petition is unjustly filed and can help you navigate through the process when such sensitive and complex issues are at risk.
