Mark S. Paige handles child support matters

Child Support


In New York State, parents are obligated to support their children until the age of 21. In times of divorce, separation, and other legal matters, courts have the authority to order parents to follow a support structure that is in the best interests of the child. New York courts often follow the NYS Child Support Guidelines to determine a fair and just child support structure. Click for more info…

Child Custody

When children’s lives are involved in a divorce or separation, an already complicated matter has the potential to escalate into a heated and contested situation. In many contested cases, each party believes that they are entitled to see the child more. Whether one party spends more time with the child as the other works or one believes that their hard work and hours away from the home entitles them to more time with their child, a divorcing couple’s battle will be fueled by a future where they will ultimately have to share their parenting time with the other.

Child Visitation

Divorce can have a serious impact on the family. A child that is in the middle of an emotionally driven divorce case can be seriously affected by the outcome. Child custody and child support issues can rip a family apart. Through it all, parents work to protect their relationship with their children. Things like sole custody and a hostile custodial parent can put a familial relationship in danger.

Grandparents Rights

Grandparents in the state of New York have the right to request a judge to order visitation rights in three circumstances.  The first is when one or both parents have passed away. The second is when a substantial relationship exists between them and their grandchildren.  And, the third involves the children’s parents interfering with their effort to establish or maintain a relationship with their grandchildren.

Family Court

New York State’s family courts hear cases regarding families, children, and spouses. A single court system was implemented by The Family Court Act, giving this system the authority to decide on matters, enforce decisions, and modify judgments when needed. Family court is part of the Unified Court System of New York State. Click for more info…


After a divorce, a judge will either sign a Judgement of Divorce that incorporates the terms of your agreement or render a decision after trial if you and your spouse are unable to reach an agreement.  Both parties must follow the orders. Whether it is related to property distribution, child support, alimony, child custody, or child visitation, a judge’s order is the law. If a person was to ignore or defy the order, he or she could face some serious consequences, including but not limited to contempt of court and even wage garnishing. However, if certain circumstances exist, a court order may be subject to modification.  Courts regularly hear requests for modification to an order.

Divorce and separation can have negative impacts on the family. Child custody cases can be devastating when a parent can’t face a future where they share a child’s time that they once saw every day. Relocation can be one of the hardest and most emotional issues a family may need to address.
