A New York City Criminal Court Judge made the following assessment about New York City Family Court:
Decisions made in Criminal Court generally affect the life of one person, the accused; however, decisions in Family Court affect the family unit, namely the parents in disagreement and their innocent children. This can lead to long and stressful litigation.
Whether Married or Single with children, parents are faced with challenging decisions that affect the welfare of their children daily.
Family court has jurisdiction over cases involving child custody, visitation, and child support. In addition, if there is verbal, physical, or sexual abuse in the household, the Family Court has jurisdiction to issue Orders of Protection and even remove minors from the household.
