At Mazur, Bocketti, Nisonoff Khavulya P.C., our lawyers speak your language. In addition to serving as skilled family law attorneys, many of whom are bilingual, we are also parents who understand the sensitive issues involved in child custody, visitation and stepparent adoption matters.


We Are Manhattan Adoption Attorneys Protecting the Rights of Children and Parents in Child Custody, Visitation, Adoption and Stepparent Adoption Cases


Our team of accomplished attorneys has more than 150 years of combined experience resolving a wide range of legal issues for people throughout New York and New Jersey.


We have negotiated many types of custody agreements for our clients, ranging from the traditional full, joint and split child custody arrangements to a schedule of shared parenting that is tailored to your specific circumstances, needs, religion and/or tradition.


The lawyers in our law firm are well known within the Jewish community because many of our attorneys are Jewish or Orthodox Jews, and one of the lawyers who founded our firm, Abe Konstam, is an ordained rabbi. This in-depth knowledge of many traditions and customs can be especially helpful when there are numerous issues, individuals and religions involved.


Custody Modifications


It is not unusual to make changes to custody arrangements, because there are many factors that must be considered when accommodating the busy lives of children and parents. Relocation, extracurricular activities, work schedules and holiday schedules may create the need for changes to custody or visitation. We protect the rights of our clients and focus on obtaining the outcome that they feel will be best for their children and their family.


Our Knowledgeable Attorneys Handle All Types of Adoptions


We represent men, women and same sex couples in cases involving private domestic adoptions, agency-assisted adoptions, international adoptions, foster care adoptions, surrogate parent adoptions, second parent adoptions and stepparent adoptions.

If you are planning or considering an international adoption, it is important to determine if the country where the child is located is party to the Hague Adoption Convention.


Please contact us to arrange a consultation, so we can explain your legal rights, as well as any issues that may affect your adoption or custody/visitation agreement or modification. Our Brooklyn child custody attorneys represent clients throughout New York and New Jersey.
