There are often several components to divorce: financial concerns, custody issues, alimony and so much more. Often times, the most important issues you want to resolve are those concerning the financial, physical, and emotional care and needs of the children involved. It can seem overwhelming at times. That’s why it is so important to hire exceptional legal assistance.

At Winkler, Kurtz & Winkler, we can offer you that outstanding legal assistance through our years of Divorce Law experience. With our team, you are not alone.

When it comes to visitation rights there are several issues that can come into play:

Initiate – When custody is established, a visitation schedule for the non-custodial parent is put into place. We can help you establish a schedule that will allow the non-custodial parent the opportunity to continue to foster positive relationships with the children. The best interest of the children will always be taken into consideration.

Enforce – There are often times when visitation rights are not enforced. Many times, unfortunately, even after divorce strong emotions still exist. When the custodial parent denies court-ordered visitation, the non-custodial parent will need professional assistance to have that schedule adhered to.

Modify – There are circumstances that change which might necessitate modifying visitation rights. You will need the legal expertise of a reputable firm in order to assist with this process. There must be strong basis for the request for modification and you will need help with filing a motion or petition in the court system.

Other Visitations – There may be special circumstances where a grandparent, for example, will need to show legal standing in order to obtain rights for visitation.

If you live and commute on Long Island, you’ve noticed the increase in motor vehicle traffic over the past several years. With each driving-aged family member often needing their own vehicles, there are now more cars on the road than ever. These facts combined with the threats of Distracted Driving due to mobile devices and other technologies have proven to make car accidents an unfortunate yet common occurrence on Long Island roadways. The frequency of car accidents on Long Island can also be attributed in part to many of the major roadways spanning Nassau and Suffolk counties:

 

  • Long Island Expressway (LIE)
  • Northern State Parkway
  • Southern State Parkway
  • Sunken Meadow/Sagtikos Parkway
  • Route 347
  • Route 112
  • Route 111
  • Route 110

 

Many of these major roadways, particularly the local routes, intersect with other major roadways and provide additional potential for serious Motor Vehicle Accidents.

Here are some important things to know about Car Accidents in New York State:

  • If you've been involved in a Motor Vehicle Accident, don't hesitate to contact an Attorney. The Statute of Limitations in New York for Car Accidents is 3 years; this means that Car Accident cases must be initiated no more than 3 years from the date of the accident.
  • New York is a No-Fault State. Regarding Car Accidents, New York is a No-Fault state - but the meaning of the term "No-Fault" is often misconstrued. Contrary to popular belief, No-Fault does not mean that neither party was at fault during a Car Accident. No Fault refers to the policy that states that regardless of who may have been at fault for the accident, both parties involved are entitled to have their medical bills covered under their automotive insurance policies, up to $50,000. Individuals claiming No Fault coverage have 30 days from the date of the accident in which to do so. More information on No Fault coverage can be found HERE.
  • In Order to Receive Financial Compensation after a Car Accident in addition to No-Fault Coverage, the Threshold of "Serious Injury" must be met. This threshold is defined as the following by the New York Insurance Laws section 5102(d):

(d) "Serious injury" means a personal injury which results  in  death; dismemberment;  significant  disfigurement; a fracture; loss of a fetus; permanent loss of use of a  body  organ,  member,  function  or  system; permanent  consequential  limitation  of  use of a body organ or member; significant limitation of use  of  a  body  function  or  system;  or  a medically  determined  injury  or  impairment  of a non-permanent nature which prevents the injured person from performing substantially  all  of the  material  acts  which  constitute such person’s usual and customary daily activities for not less than ninety days during  the  one  hundred eighty  days immediately  following  the  occurrence  of  the injury or impairment.
