Rockland County Child Custody Attorney

Protecting Your Rights in Custody and Visitation

Your child's well-being and your relationship with your child are more important than anything. I understand that, and I will fight to protect that. Whether you are getting divorced or revisiting court orders, I offer experienced representation in all child custody matters.

My name is William Henig, a solo attorney with a focused practice in family law. I want you to be confident that I am on your side, and that I will stand up for you and the best interests of your child. Contact me today for a free consultation. I represent mothers and fathers in Rockland, Orange and Sullivan counties of New York.

Rockland County Child Custody Lawyer

I have handled every custody scenario, from negotiated parenting plans to bitter courtroom fights:

  • Standard custody and visitation — If you are the non-custodial parent, I work to maximize time with your child and ensure you have a say in child-rearing decisions.
  • Shared parenting arrangements — Shifting gears is hard on some kids, but if you are committed to make it work, I will help work out the details to the court's satisfaction.
  • Contested proceedings for sole custody — We must show evidence of addiction, child abuse or neglect, domestic violence or other danger to your child's well-being.
  • Custody modification — There must be a significant change in circumstances to alter parenting time or switch primary custody.
  • Parental relocation — I represent either parent in these contentious proceedings. The court is concerned with the best interests of the child and the relationship with the parent left behind. There must be justification for the move, such as a new job or remarriage.
  • Enforcement of visitation — If the custodial parent is interfering with your visitation rights, I can represent you in contempt of court proceedings.
  • Child Protective Services — I have extensive experience in CPS cases as a former prosecutor in Kings County. If the state of New York is threatening to take away your child, I can step in to fight it. If your child has already been removed, I can help you take the right steps to get your child back.
  • Paternity — I represent unmarried fathers seeking to be involved in a child's life. I also represent mothers seeking child support or fighting visitation.

Custody battles are expensive and poison the co-parenting relationship. I always strive for amicable agreements and practical parenting plans, but sometimes it is necessary to go to court. I am a veteran of family court hearings and trials who can prepare you for the process and vigorously assert your wishes.
