Child Custody
Small firm, specialties are child custody, support, visitation and default or uncontested divorce.
Child custody, support or visitation issues get you where it hurts. Naturally, you want the best representation possible for a reasonable price. Morinelli & Lieberman can help you with these issues.


We are a small boutique firm that specializes in child custody, child support, visitation and default or uncontested divorce. We perform our services for a flat fee and
accept payment plans. You will know every penny you are going to spend beforehand so you can budget.

If you already have child custody, visitation or support, we can file a Request for Order to ask the court to order what you want. We also defend you against another party's Request for Order. If you do not have a case already filed, and are unmarried, we must file a Petition for Parentage along with the Request for Order.

We can help you understand the Family Law process and craft a parenting plan that is in your child's best interest. Don't make the mistake of "going it alone" with any of these issues because you may make major errors that give up your rights without you understanding what happened.
